SCHUMER ANNOUNCES CHARLOTTE HIGH SCHOOL IN ROCHESTER WILL RECEIVE 5 BRAND NEW COMPUTERS TO IMPROVE COMPUTER SCIENCE EDUCATION FOR STUDENTS
New Computers Part of United States Senate Computers for School Program
Program Aims to Help Public Schools Take Advantage of IT Age By Receiving Surplus Computers
Today, U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer announced that Charlotte High School in Rochester will receive 5 new computers under the United States Senate Computers for Schools Program. The program helps public schools take advantage of the information technology age by channeling surplus computers into classrooms across the country. Schumer was eligible to allocate 25 new computers to school districts across the state.
“I am thrilled to have sent these 5 new computers to the outstanding Charlotte High School in Rochester,” Schumer said. “Computers are such an integral part of all children’s education these days and without up to date technology, schools and their students may fall behind. With computer skills becoming so important in this technological age, these computers will go a long way with helping students become successful.”
Due to his seniority in the Senate, Schumer was able to allocate 25 new computers to schools across the state. The other schools which received computers are: Indian Lake Central School District in Albany, P.S. 35 Clove Valley School in Staten Island, Fowler High School in Syracuse, and Grover Cleveland High School in Buffalo.
