As children prepare to head back to school, Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C,I,REF-Glenville) today announced a new $10,000 state grant he secured for the Northville Central School District.
This state Education Program Funding Grant Senator Tedisco obtained for Northville is on top of the more than $379,000 state aid increase he successfully advocated for over the past two years for Northville Schools in the New York State Budget.
This grant will help the Northville School District adopt cloud-based technology as part of the school’s innovative Fabrication and Design Initiative that will give students the skills they need to compete in our 21st century economy.
“All of our schools including Northville deserve fair funding to provide our children with the kind of education they need and deserve to learn and grow. As a former teacher, guidance counselor, athletic director and coach, I’m proud to have been a driving force in the state Senate the past two years for state budgets that substantially increased funding to the Northville School District by over $379,000 and I’m going to continue to fight to fully fund Northville and all of our schools,” said Senator Tedisco.
“The Northville School Board and District wish to thank Senator Tedisco for his continued, firm partnership on behalf of our district’s Fabrication and Design Initiative. Small, rural school districts can be a significant driver for change in New York State with the support of informed, dedicated representatives,” said Dr. Leslie Ford, Superintendent of the Northville Central School District.
