Headphones for State Testing

My students need headphones in order to complete their state testing to the best of their ability. Over the ear headphones are much better as they don't fall out and they are easier to clean.

My Students

Most students at LCS come from low-income families. 92% of our student body is on free or reduced lunch. Students in grades Kindergarten through Second have test scores lower than the state average. Testing is a struggle for these students.

When it comes spending money at home, food is more important than headphones.

Even though we ask for them on our supply list, only a handful of students are able to afford them. Our state testing requires headphones. Some students are using old ones that may only have one side working. Some have to be placed in a room alone because the device will read questions out loud and they can't be heard by others. This is affecting their scores.

A simple set of headphones could make a huge difference for these students. Thank you!

My Project

State testing is required on an electronic device. In grades K-2, students have questions read to them. In order for students to all test together, they need headphones.

Our parents can not afford headphones for their children.

We try to provide them, but we are usually buying them with our own money. Several headphones are broken and some only have one side working. We do have students without headphones and they have to test in a separate room so no one can hear their device. Special Education students are required to have headphones.

Having proper testing materials will improve confidence and test scores.
