The cafeteria and tech space were part of $3 million in capital improvements carried out in district schools this summer. The projects were funded by a bond issue approved by district voters in May 2011.

State Sen. Greg Ball, R-Patterson, was also present to take part in a ceremonial check presentation for a $75,000 “bullet aid” grant that will be used to provide wireless Internet to the high school. In addition to the $75,000, Ball was able to secure another $50,000 grant for the district’s new 21st Century Learning Center. The Learning Center is a program geared toward high school students who are not on track to graduate on schedule.

Wireless internet was the last thing they needed. In fact, if they made kids drop off their phones upon entering the building it would be a great thing.

Amazing how much taxpayer funded grant money Senator Photo Op is pouring into the Peekskill of late. Think it could have anything to do with the fact that Peekskill is now part of his electoral district?

What concerns me is when the cafeteria will be completed?
