Schools don’t tech advantage a of $2B

- Kenneth Lovett

ALBANY — Voters in 2014 approved a $2 billion bond act pushed by Gov. Cuomo and designed to help local school districts buy needed new technology. But to date, not a dime has been spent on the effort.

In fact, only about 50 of the more than 700 school districts in the state have even submitted applicatio­ns for the money, officials said.

Cuomo spokesman Richard Azzopardi said the state didn’t receive any requests for the money until late last year — a full year after voters approved the borrowing.
