State Rep. Kim Rose (D-Milford) lauded news that the State Bond Commission today approved funding for Milford’s school district.

$137,345 grant-in-aid was allocated to Milford’s schools for technology upgrades and to improve internet access in classrooms.

“I applaud the state’s commitment to supporting our schools by providing the necessary resources to continue meeting the newly established standards,” Rep. Rose said. “When it comes to keeping up with today’s technological demands, upgrades are always welcomed.”

Several school districts across the state benefited from more than $10 million in bond allocations to help them with technological upgrades including computer equipment.

Rep. Rose said, “Every investment we can make, whether big or small, will help us advance in the right direction. A strong and educated workforce is the foundation of stable communities and a catalyst for economic growth.”

Kim Rose is serving her third term representing Milford’s 118th Assembly District.
