Baldwin UFSD Awarded $50K Grant from Assemblywoman Judy Griffin    

Assemblywoman Judy Griffin joined local leaders in Baldwin to unveil that she secured a $50,000 grant for the Baldwin Union Free School District. These funds will be used to enhance school children's learning environments.

“This funding will enhance Baldwin students’ learning experiences and will help them become leaders of tomorrow,” said Assemblywoman Judy Griffin. “I, along with my colleagues in government, was proud to have secured this $50,000 grant for the Baldwin Union Free School District, and I am confident that this funding will enrich education in Baldwin for years to come.”

“The Baldwin Union Free School District would like to thank Assemblywoman Judy Griffin for the grant of $50,000,” said Dr. Shari L. Camhi, Superintendent of Schools.  “We plan to use the funds to continue to enhance learning and the academic environment.  Our students deserve the highest quality education possible. We greatly appreciate Ms. Griffin’s and the state’s support.”

“Providing our schools and teachers with the resources necessary to give Baldwin’s children a first-rate education is crucial,” said Senator Todd Kaminsky. “I was pleased to support Assemblywoman Griffin's efforts to secure these vital resources for the Baldwin School District. Importantly, the more money we secure from Albany, the less local taxpayers are called upon to shoulder the financial burden.”

“Our children and their success is a top priority.  Flexible funding is one of the vital tools needed to ensure our school districts can provide resources in the most effective and efficient manner,” said Assemblywoman Taylor Darling. “I am elated that Assemblywoman Griffin, Senator Kaminsky and I were able to secure $50,000 for the Beautiful Baldwin School District.”
