Budget Impact

In Yonkers, OER is beneficial, as it is a low cost means to support instruction. Yonkers considers any instructional resources’ return on investment, weighing the purpose of the resource and the cost. In Yonkers, some teachers are migrating towards digital tools (including OER) to replace text books. An example of this is with the EngageNY materials, which some schools are adopting as their preferred resource. When appropriate, an OER is preferred since it is more cost effective.

  • Budgetary Questions to Consider

    What costs would you incur to modify the OER to fit your district/schools learning standards?

    Can you provide sufficient time to teachers to identify the OER to be used in the classroom?

    What is the cost comparison between using digital OER and printing OER materials?
