Air Conditioner for Students with Visual Impairments

My students need a portable air conditioner so that they can be comfortable in our resource room taking long exams.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students all have visual impairments ranging from vision loss to total blindness. They all participate in a rigorous general education curriculum, and are encouraged to participate in after school clubs and activities along with their sighted peers. My classroom is a resource room where they come to have their vision services, as well as often use the technology provided in this room to access classroom materials. They take all of their tests in here, including hours and hours of SAT's and Regent testing in June. Our room has no windows or air flow. I am hoping to obtain a portable air conditioner to make their experience much more comfortable and hopefully lead to a more successful educational outcome. Thank you!

My Project

My students all are hard working, bright, interesting individuals. They participate in the rigorous New York City Public Education general education standards. They come to the vision resource room several times every day to receive vision services, orientation and mobility, and utilize technology to access their classroom materials.

In addition to taking their classroom exams and quizzes in our room, they all take their standardized tests such as SAT's and Regents in our room.

These tests take them many hours because they receive extra time. Our classroom has no windows or ventilation. A portable air conditioner would make it much more comfortable for them to test and lead to greater educational success.
