(Washington, D.C.) - U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen announced today that Nute High School and Nute Middle School in Milton have received 25 computers through the U.S. Senate's Computers for Schools Program, which donates surplus used computers to schools across the country.  Shaheen worked with New Hampshire education officials to identify schools with the highest need for the computers and recommended the Senate donate these computers to the Milton schools.  The computers will be divided between the schools as determined by the school district. 

"Computers are an essential tool in every classroom," said Shaheen. "I'm glad that Milton's high school and middle school students will be able to use these computers to explore new topics, gain valuable skills, and help achieve their goals."

"On behalf of the Milton School District, I would like to express my deepest appreciation for the generous contribution of 25 computers to our district," said Gail Kushner, Superintendent SAU 64.  "Milton is struggling to meet the needs of our schools, and this donation will open the world to our students."

The Senate's Computers for Schools Program helps public schools take advantage of information technology through donations of surplus computers to classrooms across the country.
