Hooray! This project is fully funded

The Special Education class I teach had its old, very old printers die during the most important writing assignment of the school year. It is a portfolio of each student's academic growth during the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade that every 8th grader must complete before they can be promoted to high school. I have bright students who have difficulty completing writing assignments and the ability to edit on a computer greatly enhances the quality of their work. The class has two old computers for the students to work with: a Power Macintosh 5400/200 and a Gateway LE 500. But we need two printers, which the district will not provide, so that the students may continue to improve their writing skills. We could use new computers too but I will work with the ones I have until they no longer are able to provide word-processing services.
