The Smart Schools Bond Act was approved by voters during the general election on November 4, 2014. The Smart Schools Bond Act authorized $2 billion of general obligation bonds to finance educational technology and infrastructure to improve the learning environment of students throughout the State. The plan allocated $2.1 million in ‘Smart Schools’ funds to the District for technology and security enhancements. Districts interested in obtaining funds were required to follow a rigorous process to develop and submit a Smart Schools Investment Plan.
