BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- The Bronxville Board of Education accepted a gift of $8,315 from the PTA on Saturday, March 1, to help launch a study to redesign the secondary school library.
The study will explore the possibility of converting the library from a place where books are archived to a space that supports innovative technology-based work by students.
"We have included a technology partnership with BOCES in the 2014-15 budget, but we are getting a head start this semester," Schools Superintendent David Quattrone said in a statement. "We are working with a consultant who has been talking with teachers about their technology frustrations and needs, and we are excited by the prospects of some important improvements in our infrastructure. The idea of turning the library into a 'learning commons' is a promising development, and we are grateful to the PTA for its support."
