I am pleased to announce that schools in my district can now access their share of the $500,000 in State funding that my office designated to elementary, middle and secondary schools for capital projects. All schools were asked to identify their own capital needs. Projects such as auditorium renovations, technology upgrades including computers and smart boards, as well as electrical upgrades for air conditioning will now move forward at P.S. 10, P.S. 39, P.S. 107, P.S. 130, P.S. 134, P.S. 139, P.S. 154, P.S. 179, P.S. 217, P.S. 230, P.S. 295, P.S. 321, M.S. 51, M.S. 88, Ditmas Junior High, and the secondary schools at the John Jay Campus. New Voices Middle School will also receive funding under a separate grant. The funds were appropriated two years ago and my office has guided the projects through City and State approvals. The Legislature did not authorize additional funding this year as a result of the State’s financial problems.
