Smart School Bond Act

The Smart Schools Bond Act (SSBA) 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 authorized the issuance of $2 billion of general obligation bonds to finance educational technology and infrastructure to improve learning and opportunity for students throughout NY 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.

NYSED’s Business Portal will host the application that will collect districts’ Smart Schools Investment Plans (SSIPs). NYSED will review the SSIPs for completeness, then, when appropriate, share with the Review Board for consideration.

The Smart Schools Bond Act (SSBA) Allocations is available here.

Final Smart Schools Investment Plan (SSIP) submission application is now available on the NYSED Business Portal.
