Platt gets state money

State Senator Gayle S. Slossberg (D-Milford) announced that the state is delivering on its promise to provide students in the technical high school system with the best resources and equipment available. State funding for infrastructure improvements at Platt Technical High School in Milford was approved at a recent meeting of the state bond commission at the legislative office building in Hartford.

“The legislature’s work to grow high-skill jobs and boost our local economies is complimented by our equally strong commitment to giving our students the necessary skills and learning to take on these jobs when they graduate,” Slossberg said. “It’s imperative that we provide our vo-tech schools with the most up-to-date technologies so that when our students graduate they are prepared to thrive in a competitive job market.”

The $270,600 will be used to replace old equipment; specifically, it will help the school acquire new lathes. The funding is part of a $3,500,000 bond request to make alterations and improvements to the buildings and grounds of Connecticut’s technical high school system.
