Assemblywoman Carrie Woerner, "Hartford is cutting edge."
On Wednesday, February 19, Assemblywoman Carrie Woerner visited the Hartford Central School District to view the recently installed generator. Hartford’s Superintendent Andrew Cook worked with the offices of Assemblywoman Carrie Woerner and Senator Betty Little to secure two state and municipal facilities funding grants to cover the entire cost of the project. The generator was approved by district residents via a special vote held September 18, 2018, and was just recently installed.
During Assemblywoman Woerner’s visit, Superintendent Cook also showcased the District’s two distance learning centers, which hosts and receives numerous classes that students would not otherwise have the opportunity to take, including a number of college courses. An average of over 40% of Hartford’s juniors and seniors are enrolled in at least one distance learning class during their time at Hartford.
Assemblywoman Woerner also visited the District’s alternative energy plant and learned how this renewable resource saves the District financial resources and also serves as a learning space for Hartford’s students.
“Hartford is really on the cutting edge,” Assemblywoman Woerner remarked.
