We have the ability to remotely connect to your computer, so even if you just need assistance with how to use software, we can connect with you and do a remote teaching session. Feel free to reach out to Shannon or one of the Tech Coaches to set up a remote instructional tech support session.

If you have computer hardware issues, we have a make-shift Helpdesk in the HS cafeteria, right inside the exterior doors. Please call or email if you plan to stop by so we can make sure we have someone present to help you.

Smart Schools Investment Plan

The Smart Schools Bond Act (SSBA) was approved by New York State voters in 2014 and authorized the issuance of $2 billion of general obligation bonds to finance improved educational technology and infrastructure to improve learning and opportunity for students throughout the State. The SSBA allocation for Bethlehem Central School District is $2,039,178.

The SSBA requires that a district submits a Smart Schools Investment Plan before any funds may be made available for the program.
