Assemblyman James N. Tedisco (R,C,I-Schenectady-Saratoga) today met with students and officials from the Saratoga Springs School District. Tedisco visited the Lake Avenue Elementary School, where the 5th grade class displayed their classroom’s hand-held computer technology.
“Too often, government focuses strictly on the here and now while neglecting future needs,” Tedisco said. “Today’s visit reminds all of us that we must pave the way for today’s best and brightest to become tomorrow’s leaders. Thankfully, as part of the Saratoga Springs School District, Lake Avenue is able to utilize 21st century technology to prepare 21st century students. These students are effectively learning the technology that will be so instrumental in their future educational and vocational endeavors.”
Following the school tour, Tedisco met with Superintendent Janice White to discuss the Contingency Cap, GASB 45 implications, the governor’s budget proposals, and the Maple Avenue traffic signal. Tedisco echoed his earlier theme in calling for “sufficient, efficient education investment” in order to effectively prepare the state’s future workforce.
