My Students

Our school serves a variety students from all over our district. These students face many challenges at home, work and school. We have many drop outs, problems with drugs and alcohol and some teen moms. Most of our students have to work to help support their families at home or are out on their own trying to survive.

At risk students face many struggles that we may never know about.

Helping our students get their diploma makes it worth it everyday.

My Project

Some of our students struggle with learning online courses at our school. Having a good pair of headphones will help them hear instructions and text as it is read to them.

We are an unique alternative school helping at risk students get their diplomas.

Having new headphones will give our students the chance to listen to their courses as it is being read to them. Our special needs students will benefit from these headphones as well while tuning out noises around.

Listening to music is another intervention we like to use for our students who get distracted easily and for a reward in finishing their daily assignments.
