District 26 Schools to Receive Tech Upgrades

Schools through District 26 are getting some major technology upgrades

Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer has allocated $1.29 million dollars this year for schools in Long Island City, Astoria, Sunnyside and Woodside.

IS 125 in Woodside is one of the schools benefiting and students in grades six through eight will receive new smart boards.

Schools also received additional laptops and updates to their computer labs.

"We want to make sure that they have the tools that they have the expertise and young people love technology. They embrace technology and they learn better with technology," said Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer (D-Queens).

"Since we have smartboards, everyone wants to get up and start moving stuff around," said Muskan Sehjal, a student at IS 125

Van Bramer has allocated more than $5 million dollars to schools in his district over the past six years.
