Three Western New York schools will receive aid as part of an education initiative that was proposed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
The initiative makes $75.6 million available to help modernize schools such as Southwestern, Chautauqua Lake and Westfield Academy. The plan is part of a Smart Schools Bond Act, which is being described as an education technology initiative.
Money given to each school is divided into four different categories: School Connectivity, Classroom Technology, Pre-K Classrooms and High-Tech Security. All of the money going to Southwestern, Chautauqua Lake and Westfield Academy fall are a part of Classroom Technology.
