Canajoharie tech plan public hearing set for Nov. 3

The Canajoharie Central School District Board of Education will hold a public hearing on Nov. 3 regarding the district’s proposed Smart Schools Investment Plan.

The New York State Smart Schools Bond Act was passed in the 2014-15 state budget and approved by voters in a statewide referendum in November 2014. Canajoharie Central School qualifies for $1,017,758 from the Smart Schools Bond Act. This funding can be used for instructional technology and school safety upgrades.

The board of education will gather public feedback on the plan at 6:30 p.m., Nov. 3 in the high school auditorium. The board’s informational meeting will immediately follow at 7 p.m. The board is scheduled to adopt the plan at its Nov. 17 business meeting after which it will be submitted to the state for final approval.

The Canajoharie Smart Schools Investment Plan includes the purchase of additional portable technology for classroom and learning use (laptop/tablet carts), the implementation of a distance learning classroom and the addition of wireless internet capability on school busses for student use.
