My students need five laptops in order to replace old and broken computers in our classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our school is located in the rural south. Most of our students are African-American, and many would be considered at-risk for one reason or another. Many of our students live in dire poverty. As a result, learning is not always the biggest issue in their lives.
For many of my students, it is hard for their families to provide the basic materials they need for class.
Since most of my children come from impoverished backgrounds, it is understandable that this can happen. In some cases, their parents have to choose between buying school supplies and putting food on the table. Because of this, we need help to make sure these students have the items they need on a daily basis.
Our school serves students who have been removed from their normal school setting. Because of this, all our students do their work on computers. This is done in order to insure that they are still given the same materials as their peers.
Currently, many of our computers are old and outdated.
This set of computers that will be replaced are over ten years old. As you can imagine, there are many issues with them. These five computers will serve all the needs of the students that use them. The students will use them to complete all of their assignments for all subjects during the day. Since we are on this set up, you can probably see why this is so important.
In most cases our students are discipline problems. In many cases, this comes from being academically behind. These computers will help to insure that they get the education that they need to be successful.
