Boston – State Senator Richard Ross is pleased to announce that grant funds for the Digital Connections Partnership Schools Grant Program have been awarded to eight Attleboro schools for FY 2017. Lt. Governor Polito announced yesterday the recipients of $847,059 in state grants that will support technology infrastructure in the Commonwealth’s schools.
