Senator Klein Announces Funding for New Smart Boards at P.S. 83
The $50,000 grant will be used to outfit 10 classrooms with the interactive boards
Senator Jeff Klein announced $50,000 in state funding for P.S. 83, which will be used to outfit ten classrooms with the new interactive smart boards. Klein made the announcement last Friday inside the P.S. 83 library, joined by Principal Brandon Muccino and a group of 7th grade students.
“It’s imperative that our schools keep up with the latest in technology to ensure our students are given the best possible chance to succeed. These new smart boards will foster a better learning environment, and benefit not just our youngsters, but also the teachers tasked with guiding our children toward a better future,” said Senator Klein.
“Just as blackboards and chalk were once a requirement of all classrooms, interactive boards are the new necessity. We are an information sharing society and we need to make sure our children are well prepared for it. Being able to plan lessons and display media in high definition are imperative to raise children of the 21st century. We thank the Senator for understanding this need and for providing us with the latest teaching tools available,” said P.S. 83 Principal Brandon Muccino.
The new displays are part of a larger project to replace all existing whiteboards throughout the Morris Park school. A portion of overall project has already been completed, enabling Senator Klein to see firsthand how the smart boards operate.
