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

Last week, I sent a letter [1] 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.
