My students are middle school age and some have trouble fitting in with other students. Some of these students have social disabilities such as Asperger Sydrome, while others just prefer being alone. During lunch some students go to our gymnasium where they are supervised and others just hang out at the tables until the bell rings. Some students read while others mingle. I have had many students come to me to use my computer or laptop to work on Achieve 3000 not just because they like the program but because they want an escape from socialization. We are a small PreK-8 school located in a very rural area. In fact sometimes we have snakes or alligators at our doorstep upon entering school. We have flooded twice for Hurricanes Rita and Ike. Last year a levee was built around our school so that we will never flood again. We have a high poverty level with over 51% of our students on free or reduced lunch. Because we are such a small community Stakeholders are rare.
