I am requesting two Chromebooks. My job revolves around the students scores on the Istation learning program. Unfortunately, we do not have enough computers in our school to get this done in a timely fashion. If it's not bad enough that we are a low income district, but we were also recently affected by Hurricane Harvey. Our middle school received most of the damage, though it has affected all of us. We were limited on technology before the disaster, and have suffered since. After Harvey, most of my students still do not have a home, much less a computer. Not that our poverty stricken families had them before. School is the only time that these children have any access to modern technology. In this day and age, students need computer knowledge. Even a fast food restaurant uses computer systems. If I were able to have a few Chromebooks in my classroom, it would give me more time to teach the students. We spend most of our sessions attempting to find an open computer lab or trying to beat one of the other 60 teachers to our one cart of iPads. Please help me get these students out of the critical bubble, and into a new world of technology.
