"The Capital Region is New York's budding technological hub and these computers will prepare students to work in a community where knowledge of advanced technology is required for success," Schumer said. "These computers are a winwin, they'll help our teachers better educate students and give students access to a world of information that will advance their learning and future careers."
"On behalf of the Rensselaer City School District and all of our students I want to thank Senator Schumer for this generous donation," said Sally Shields, Acting Superintendent of Rensselaer County School District. "We can assure him that these computers will be put to good use by our high school students as they do research assignments and homework during their study hall periods."
Due to his seniority in the Senate, Schumer was able to allocate 25 computers to schools across the state. The other schools which received computers are: the Oswego City School District, East High, South Park High School and PS 26, The Carteret School on Staten Island.
