I work at a special education school, servicing emotionally disturbed, learning disabled, and other special education classified students. Our students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds. Over 95% of the student body is eligible for free lunch and over 90% receive public assistance. The school’s ethnicity is as follows: 60% Hispanic, 30% African American, 8% Caucasian, and 2% Asian. These factors come together and place our children at a huge disadvantage, but we are committed to providing these students with a rigorous academic and therapeutic program. I run an after-school photography program at the school, and we are in desperate need of new equipment. We hold small fundraisers throughout the year to fund the program, but it is difficult to keep up with the costs. Generous staff members have dug into their own pockets to make the program successful. In order to expand the opportunities for the students involved, we are seeking funding for a Kodak EasyShare digital camera, with accompanying camera case and flash memory card. The students will use this equipment to take photos at school functions, including sporting events, assemblies, and other activities throughout the year. Some of my students have expressed interest in studying photography and videography in college. I would love to have them use new digital technology, so they can become comfortable with it before furthering their studies. Thank you for considering our proposal!
