Continuous improvement is a major focus within the Dublin City School District and during the last 18 months we have really focused upon instructional technology.
A dedicated funding stream for technology is an extremely important anchor of our technology plans and a large portion of this dedicated funding stream comes from the Bridge Street Cooperative Agreement.
Under the terms of the agreement with the City of Dublin, our district will receive payments in lieu of taxes, totaling $50-million, or $1.5-million per year, over the next 33-years.
The annual payments will provide the district with a dedicated revenue stream for technology. This revenue stream allows us to formulate a technology plan that allows the district to make regular and targeted technology purchases, as opposed to making only large technology purchases after a bond issue has been approved.
Without a strong partnership with the City of Dublin, our strides in technology would not have happened this quickly.
