 WELCOME BACK!
 
Dear Niagara Wheatfield Families,

On behalf of the faculty, staff and administration it gives me great pleasure to welcome everyone back for the start of the 2017-2018 school year.  The summer provided teachers an opportunity to enhance their teaching craft through professional development; afforded administrators a chance to prepare schedules, establish goals, and review procedures; and allowed our staff necessary time to prepare the classrooms and equipment for student arrival on Tuesday, September 5.

 Our Comprehensive District Educational Planning (CDEP) goals have been established for 2017-2018.  They are as follows:

Goal #1 - Vertically aligned K-12 common scope and sequence maps will be developed and/or revised.

Goal #2 - Utilize assessment data to diagnose needs and identify research based methodologies to drive instruction.

Goal #3 - Revise Response To Intervention (RTI) and Academic Intervention Services (AIS) pathways to prescriptively meet individual student needs.

Goal #4 - The District will continue to increase engagement in the school community.

The District is looking for individuals interested in joining the Comprehensive District Educational Planning (CDEP) Team.  Please see our homepage for information if you are interested in being part of the committee.  The CDEP Team will concentrate on the following items related to CDEP Goal #4 - Engagement:

·       Creating a more welcoming environment to all of our schools by reviewing current external and internal signage and then making recommendations for new signage.

·       Reviewing the District Mission Statement and, if need be, recommending changes.

·       Reviewing the District Code of Conduct and, if need be, recommending changes.

Lastly, we will be experiencing significant facilities project work this school year.  Phase I of our Capital Project is set to be complete in the next few weeks, and Phase II will begin in 2018.  We also expect to begin our Smart Schools Project and Energy Performance Contract in the spring of 2018.  Please be patient with the progress as our facilities work comes to fruition. 

Wishing you a successful year,

Daniel G. Ljiljanich

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:
