Letter to Mayor: Release FY 20 capital funding for remote-learning technology

Last week, I sent a letter to Mayor de Blasio demanding the immediate release of FY 20 funding to the School Construction Authority so we can get technology to students who need it for remote learning. I also continue to push the NYC Dept. of Education Division of Instructional and Information Technology to finalize whatever is needed to purchase Chromebooks. More than a year after winning this battle and changing Directive X, schools are not able to purchase Chromebooks.
