Gov. Christie made the announcement that the Schools Development Authority of New Jersey has identified Connors Elementary School in downtown Hoboken as a facility in serious deficiency and in need of rehabilitation.
“These upgrades are essential to a productive learning environment,” said Hoboken-based Assemblyman Ruben Ramos (D-Hoboken), who said he advocated directly to the SDA on behalf of the Connors School. “By having a modern day classroom, these students can feel good about their school and community.”
In 2008, the SDA awarded $271.2 million to the entire 33rd Legislative District. This funding was used to build new schools in West New York, Union City, and Jersey City. Hoboken was supposed to receive funding to renovate the Connors Elementary School, but has not received funding until this year.
“This is a long time coming,” said Ramos.
