Smart Schools Investment Plan

SmartSchoolsLogoHillside Children's Center recently received $142,067 for educational technology capital projects to improve learning and opportunity for students with disabilities from New York State as part of their Smart Schools Bond Act of 2014. We're looking for your input on how those funds will be used within Hillside schools. Recommendations include:

  • Mobile Computer Labs
  • Camcorders for Teacher Recording and Evaluation
