Niagara Wheatfield Central School District

Smart Schools Bond Spending Plan


What is the Smart Schools Bond Act?

The Smart Schools Bond Act (SSBA) was passed as part of the 2014-15 New York State budget and approved by voters in a statewide referendum held on Nov. 4, 2014.

The SSBA authorized the issuance of $2 billion in bonds to finance educational technology and infrastructure to improve learning opportunities for students throughout the state.


How much will Niagara Wheatfield Central School District receive under the plan?

The district was allocated $2,707,858 under the SSBA.

The state will reimburse the district for 100 percent of its expenses as identified in the Niagara Wheatfield Smart Schools Investment Plan.

This plan earmarks $2,007,464 of the allocation for infrastructure that will support network and security upgrades in alignment with our Strategic Planning process and long range Facilities Plan. Niagara Wheatfield CSD plans to implement its plan beginning in Summer of 2018. Smart Schools bond funds remain available until a district has used its entire allocation.


Is there any local cost associated with the technology purchases?

There is no local cost associated with the initial purchase.


When will the Board discuss the plan and its’ impact?

On April 5, the Board of Education will hear an overview of the proposed plan.


Is there a public hearing on this plan?

Yes. The Niagara Wheatfield CSD Board of Education will conduct a public hearing as a part of its 7 p.m. May 17 meeting. The plan requires a vote by the Board for approval.


In alignment with our Strategic Planning process and long range Facilities Plan, the following chart outlines the planned expenditure of the Smart Schools Bond Act monies:

     Niagara Wheatfield Central School District is comprised of four (4) towns – Town of Wheatfield, Town of Niagara, Town of Lewiston, and the Town of Cambria.  Currently our K-12 student enrollment is just under 3,600.  The District has four (4) elementary schools – Colonial Village Elementary School, West Street Elementary School, Errick Road Elementary School, and the Tuscarora Indian Elementary School.  The District has one middle school (Edward Town Middle School) and one high school.  In addition to the core academic programs, we are very proud of the variety and quality of our extra-curricular activities.  We are beginning a Capital Project, with phase 1 beginning in the summer of 2017, and phase II in the summer of 2018.  The District has established Comprehensive District Educational Planning (CDEP) goals, which guide our Comprehensive School Educational Planning (CSEP) goals.  
The following are the District CDEP goals:
1.  Common scope and sequence maps will be developed.  Professional development will include vertical alignment of common curriculum.

2.  Utilize assessment data at all levels to inform instructional decisions.

3. Implement and evaluate Academic Intervention Services (AIS) and Response to Intervention (RTI) program.

4. The District will implement a plan to increase engagement in the school community. 

Our shared goals are reviewed annually with the Board of Education, and the primary focus is student achievement.
