The Wellsville and Scio school districts will be receiving more than $700,000 total for classroom technology and security upgrades in their buildings.

Wellsville Central School will receive $373,100 for classroom technology and Scio Central School $350,000 for high tech security as part of $31.4 million awarded for 61 awards statewide under the Smart Schools Bond Act.

Gov. Kathy Hochul reported the funding from the Smart Schools Review Board, comprised of the state budget director the Chancellor of the State University of New York, and the Commissioner of the State Education Department.

Several Allegany County school districts already have received funding for classroom technology, school connectivity and high tech security projects as part of the $2 billion Small Schools Bond Act allocations.
