A state grant is helping Hamburg Central School District construct a new area for teacher training, student learning and community education and collaboration.
The district had no training space that could accommodate groups larger than 50 people, limiting its ability to efficiently train larger groups of teachers, offer curricula to a larger population of students, or provide adult learning programs.
State Sen. Christopher Jacobs, R-Buffalo, secured $100,000 in state funds to support the construction of the new multipurpose room at Union Pleasant Elementary School. When completed later this year, the state-of-the-art space will be used for a variety of activities.
“I recognize the importance of school districts having the functional space and tools to better train their teachers,” Jacobs said.
