Almost a billion dollars in upgrades will be made to 69 New York school districts including six in the Mid-Hudson Region.

On Tuesday, Governor Kathy Hochul announced a huge list of school districts that would receive funding for upgrades such as new classrooms, improvements to athletic fields, cutting-edge technology investments, safety enhancements and other major projects.

The money is coming from bonds issued through the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York. For over 20 years the program has issued over 100 series of bonds that have benefited over 350 school districts. This latest round appears to be one of the largest in recent history, creating almost $1 billion in funds to upgrade school districts throughout the state.

Which New York Schools Will Receive Upgrades?

The money will be split between schools in the Capital Region, Central New York, the Fingerlakes Region, Long Island, Mid-Hudson Region, Mohawk Valley, North Country, Southern Tier and Western New York.
