A copy of the Smart Schools Investment Plan for the Hawthorne Cedar Knolls Union Free School District is attached. 

The SMART SCHOOLS BOND ACT OF 2014 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.  An additional $5 million of Smart Schools Bond Act funding was appropriated to improve learning and opportunity for students with disabilities enrolled in Chapter 853 schools, Special Act School Districts and 4201 schools by funding capital projects to improve access to the  Internet, purchase devices and for investment in certain classroom spaces.  

Information from the State on the addition of Smart Schools Funding for Special Act School Districts can be found on  the New York State Education Website, or by clicking the link below:
