Council Member Elizabeth S. Crowley (D-30, Queens) visited P.S. 68, on Wednesday, February 08, 2012 to welcome the inaugural class at the school’s new computer lab. The lab features more than 30 new Apple computers for the students.
“Computer skills are crucial for educational and career success,” Council Member Crowley stated. “I know the staff at P.S. 68, led by Principal Scalfaro, will use this new lab to better enrich the students’ education.”
The new computers were purchased thanks to a technology grant provided by Council Member Crowley during the Fiscal Year 2012 budget. More than $2 million have been allocated to local schools throughout the 30th Council District to fund technology rooms, libraries, and other school improvements in the 2012 budget. Since Council Member Crowley took office, she has allocated more than $5 million to neighborhood schools.
