    The Smart Schools Bond Act was passed in the 2014-15 Enacted Budget and approved by the voters in a statewide referendum held during the 2014 General Election on Tuesday, November 4, 2014. The Smart Schools Bond Act (SSBA) authorized the issuance of $2 billion of general obligation bonds to finance improved educational technology and infrastructure to improve learning and opportunity for students throughout the State. The SSBA requires that a Review Board review and approve districts’ Smart Schools Investment Plans before any funds may be made available for the program.


    The allocation of funds for the Cheektowaga Central School District is $1,144,417.

    The primary goals of the district's use of the Smart Schools Bond Act funds is to reinforce network infrastructure to support 21st century learning, support the district 1:1 initiative and support computer based testing. The SSIP preliminary plan, supporting documents and the final SSIP are available for public review:
