My students need an LCD projector if we are to take advantage of instructional materials that are computer or video-based.

My dual-immersion classroom needs serious updating! Overhead projectors were introduced to schools in the 1960s and frankly, they are clunky, inefficient, and uninspiring. Relying on transparencies makes it difficult to regularly incorporate images and visuals into classroom instruction.
Our school is located in an urban area of Northern, California.
95% of our students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. The majority of my students are English language learners. Our school is committed to providing a complete education and full support for all students to access and excel with the curriculum, especially as we move towards full implementation of the Common Core Standards.
We need an LED projector to help my students in a variety of ways.
The projector will vastly increase the amount of images and visuals I can use in my classroom to support English-language development AND my students who are visual learners. It will help provide increased access for students with auditory processing disabilities.
The projector will enable me to create interactive and dynamic presentations for my students, increasing overall engagement in direct instruction.
With this projector, my students will learn to use computers and software by having a model at the front of the room. I will be able to show short educational video clips to demonstrate academic concepts and make computer-based presentations a regular part of my lessons.
How can we expect students to be successful in the digital age if they are learning in a classroom outfitted with technology from the 1960s?
Help me prepare my students for the 21st century and also help close the digital divide that widens with every new technology that my students lack.
