Chromebook Access for Struggling Students

My students need Chromebooks in their resource class to be able to fully access their assignments.

  • $2,315 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are a dynamic group of learners from all parts of Oakland. Everyday they work to overcome a variety of learning differences and behavior challenges while navigating general education classes with resource support.

Most of my students are from low-income backgrounds, have persevered through multiple housing transitions and confronted very adult life challenges.

My students look forward to successful lives in diverse careers from nursing to business to music and therapy. They're fantastic individuals who will change the world!

My Project

Four years ago our resource support classroom for students with mild to moderate disabilities received 5 Chromebooks and it changed the way we were able to support our students. As our school becomes more online, students are able to access grade books, classroom assignments and notes, disability support software for reading and writing and much more.

Four years of daily use has taken its toll on our Chromebooks.

We need new computers to continue supporting students. Chromebooks work grade because they are simple, save everything online and are reliable and fast. Please support our class and make it possible for our students to have equitable access to the technological resources they need to be successful.
