Desperately Desired Privacy

My students need 1 high-quality shredder to safely dispose of all of their confidential Special Education documentation.

My Students

Everyone deserves to have their private information disposed of privately and respectfully.

My students are seventh and eighth graders with special needs ranging from Autism, emotional handicaps, cognitive impairments to ADHD.

Our school is a science, technology, engineering and mathematics magnet school effectively serving students who live in high poverty households. Ninety percent of our students receive free or reduced lunch. Through innovative programs, we are showing some of the most rapid growth in the state as measured by standardized test score improvement.

My Project

I am requesting 1 business-level document shredder to respectfully discard all of my students' confidential information regarding their legal Special Education services. By law, these documents are not to go into the general trash but without a proper shredder, we have to tear them into little pieces ourselves.

By supporting this project, you will have protected the privacy of all of my students and their families.

Their Special Education Individualized Education Plans contain confidential information that must be respected and protected.
