Mr. W. from Amsterdam NY is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

AHS is a high needs school with a very diverse population. There are about 1,200 students enrolled in the school. The school has about a 30% population of Hispanic students. We have many students who speak English as a second language. While some students are middle class many of our students live in poverty. Since so many students are below the poverty level every student receives free lunch. Our school is a close-knit community but needs financial support to help our students succeed.

My Project

At each home meet the hosting school is required to provided results using a track and field computer program as well as sending these results to the league chairman to keep leader boards and results. We have the computer program but at this time we do not have an appropriate computer to use to run our home meets.

A new computer for keeping results would be incredibly helpful for Cross Country and Outdoor Track and Field.

This would give us a single location to hold all information about our athletes progression as well as make it possible to fulfill our obligation to the league, coaches, and athletes.
