Digital Text Books on a Kindle Makes College More affordable!

My students need need books for college. It is cheaper for them to rent or buy digital copies of text books. So having a kindle would be a great resource for them to get text books.

My Students

Our students come from a city with a population of 16,145. It is the largest city in the county. We are an ethnically diverse community with a long tradition of farming, ranching and agricultural-business. 100% of our students in the district participate in the free and reduced lunch program, receiving free breakfast and lunch every day including summer meals. Many of our students are first generation college going students, and many don't have the support they need to take the next steps after high school. Many of our first generation students will fall into the pattern of their parents working on local farms and ranches and not attending college. They just don't know the next steps to take to better their life. They need support and structure to make it to college

My Project

We will hold a college commitment day on May 2, 2018. This is a time where students will come in and talk to the colleges about the next steps, including housing, registration, orientation, financial aide, career counseling, loans etc.

Students need help with the next steps in attending college.

After students apply and are admitted to college, they often don't know what to do next. Students will sign up for a time slot with the college they are going to attend in the fall, and attend the other workshops offered that day centered around going to college. There will be workshops helping with FAFSA, loan counseling, career inventories etc. This event will help them understand the process of going to college.

We would give away kindles to students to help with text book costs. Textbooks are very expensive, and we have found that it is cheaper to rent or buy the digital version of the book. A kindle would be a great thing for these seniors to have. They would have a device that they could download their text books too.
