New York State Senator Rev. Ruben Diaz Announces $198,500 for Hyde Leadership Charter School
New York State Senator Rev. Ruben Diaz is proud to announce that he has assigned $198,500 to the Hyde Leadership Charter School, located in his South Bronx district.
Senator Rev. Diaz stated: "I am delighted to announce that I have assigned $198,500 to the Hyde Leadership Charter School which is located in my district. This money is a godsend - it is a blessing for our children! It will be used for technology equipment to continue to develop the accomplishments of the Hyde Leadership Charter School and expand the achievements of their students. These resources should be seen as a hopeful forecast of continued support for the Hyde Leadership Charter School as they graduate their first high school class this year and establish themselves more firmly in the education community."
Senator Rev. Diaz continued: "We have all read the disappointing news this week that 50,000 children were turned away from city charter schools, and we all realize that there is still a lot of work to be done. Parents are entitled to have their children receive quality education. The option of charter school programs is one that I fully support and encourage – and I will continue to do so, as schools like the Hyde Leadership Charter School continue to demonstrate success."
The Hyde Leadership Charter School is the only K-12 college preparatory school located in the Hunts Point section of the South Bronx.
