Hooray! This project is fully funded

As a way to improve the quality of instruction for the New York City student population, Alternative to Suspension Centers have been opened as places to send students who have difficulty functioning in a traditional school setting. These Centers promote behavior modification and provide the students with a highly motivational curriculum. Computer technology is a major component of that curriculum, preparing the students to become active participants in our highly technical society. We would like to obtain 8 computers for our computer lab, and due to the limited space that our center occupies (one small room in our school) the computers would have to be laptops. The Alternative to Suspension Center is located at Sinnott Magnet School in the East New York section of Brooklyn. The Center serves middle school students who attend for a minimum of two weeks to a maximum of eighteen weeks. We have up to fifteen students in attendance on any given day. They receive one-on-one instruction, personal guidance sessions and group violence prevention counseling. Our computer lab would help develop valuable computer skills, increase their self-esteem and help motivate them to continue their education and become active members of society.
