Akron Central School District is one among 16 districts, schools and programs to receive grants from the Smart Schools Bond Act.
Akron will use the $112,760 to continue purchasing Chromebook devices for students. This is the third year of the four-year program. The district also is buying cases for the devices, Google licenses and spare power cords.
A total of $12 million in Smart School Investment Plans were approved in this round of the $2 billion bond act announced this month. The act supports investments in education technology and pre-kindergarten to equip students with the skills needed to thrive and succeed in the global economy.
