My Students

The students in my alternative school have all experienced different types of trauma in the short time they’ve been on this earth. My school serves students in grades K-12 who have been unsuccessful academically and behaviorally in the general schools. All students have been diagnosed with emotional and behavioral disorders, in addition to dealing with the death of a parent, incarcerated parent(s), moving around in foster care, drugs in the home, and/or basic needs left unmet. Due to having emotional and behavioral disorders and working through traumatic experiences, the students all have a tendency to exhibit aggressive outbursts throughout the school day. In the alternative program, students complete most academic work through an online program called Apex. The online courses allow students to complete lessons similiar to their peers in the general schools.

We need a color printer and ink for our classroom in order to print out hard copies of lessons, allowing students to be more successful in studying for quizzes given at the end of each lesson.

My Project

My alternative education students complete a majority of their lessons on a computerized program. The program, called Apex, allows students to earn credits for the same courses as their peers in the general schools. This allows students to stay on track towards graduating high school, learn much of the same material as they would in their regular school and be prepared to join in the regular classroom once they graduate from the alternative program. Still, the students have a variety of learning styles. Many students are more successful at passing the online courses when they are able to print hard copies of lessons to review before completing assessments at the end of each unit. Our current printer jams anytime we attempt to print. A new printer would not only allow us to print out lessons for success in the classroom, students would also be able to take the material home to review before completing tests. My students do not have access to computers or printers at home.
