We serve a large population of low income students. My students are always eager to try new things. We have a high special education population, mainly students with learning disabilities. We take great pride in our sports teams and love to support them. I am focusing on raising test scores and motivation.
I hope to motivate students to have good behavior/attendance so their academics will improve. I hope to motivate students to take control of their behavior and attendance with this project. We have attendance issues with several students, and hopefully this will make some want to do better.
Academic success requires students to have good behavior so that learning and the learning of others is not interrupted by bad behavior.
I also hope that entering into a chance to take the iPad home will improve both behavior and attendance.
A drawing will be used to determine who will get to use the iPad.
