    Brewster, N.Y. – 10/10/2012 – Senator Greg Ball (Patterson – R, C) is now happy to announce, that as a result of a three-way agreement between the Governor, Senate and Assembly, funds are now available for a $60,000 grant to advance Brewster High School into the 21st century.

    The grant will allow the school to purchase Google Chromebook’s for its students. The Chromebook is a new, faster computer. It starts in seconds, and offers thousands of apps to bring Brewster High School up-to-date with the most advanced technology.

    Senator Ball presented a ceremonial check to the Brewster Central School District at their regularly scheduled board of education meeting this past Tuesday night.

    “I couldn’t be happier to deliver this grant for the Brewster,” said Senator Greg Ball. “This grant will allow the school district to provide the most advanced and up-to-date technology for their students. I am proud to fight to bring as much of our tax money back from Albany, to home, where it belongs. As long as I am in office I will continue to fight for Brewster Schools and for the constituents I represent district wide.”

    The Brewster High School Principle, Joseph Castagnola said the grant would be used to move Brewster into the 21st century.

    “This grant will allow us to purchase a total of 180 Google Chromebooks for the High School and other schools in the district,” said Castagnola. “I would like to thank Senator Ball for his work in securing this grant for our school.

    Superintendent Jane Sandbank said,  “This wonderful grant continues ensuring that Brewster Schools are exposed to the best and benefit from the best that is out there. This makes a huge difference.”
