Help me give my students two more Chromebooks so more of my students can get math, language, and research support each day.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My school is a Title I school, who uses DonorsChoose.org and grants to get the technology tools that I feel I need to appropriately teach my students. My students come from various cultures and backgrounds. Most of the families in my class have both a working mother and father due to a financial need. However, my students are always anxious to use the technology I have in my classroom, because they may not have access to it at their home.
I have many students coming 20 minutes early everyday to get one of the 12 Chromebooks I have.
Unfortunately, there are always students who do not always get a Chromebook. Often, these students are the ones who need more time to work on the Chromebooks.
I find if I ask for smaller donations for technology from my parents, I have more success. This is why I am only asking for just 2 more to make fourteen. .
If you come 20 minutes early to my class in the morning, you will see my students 'run' down the hallway to get a chance on one of my twelve Chromebooks.
Unfortunately, it isn't fair that there are not enough for all 'early' students to get on a Chromebook.
Our class only has 12 Chromebooks for my 24 eager students.
Some students in my classroom are Title One students who don't have a computer at home to do their research, Math, or Language Programs. So they depend on what Chromebooks I have in my classroom everyday.
I have even told parents of Title One students to drop their students off right when the doors open. Hopefully their students can get on a Chromebook. Unfortunately, that is not a reality that happens everyday.
