My Students

98% of the students at my school receive Free/Reduced Priced Lunch and reside in low-income households. Students are working hard to improve Literacy test scores. Students are tested in areas of vocabulary and comprehension. There are several interventions that students participate in to enrich their reading skills such as Small Groups and Saturday School.

My students love to read and learn new information.

They utilize all resources that are given to them with appreciation and gratitude. The students who will receive the impact of this project is grade 5.

My Project

The technology requested will be used by the teacher to take attendance, create assignments, record papers and locate academic material online for academic student daily learning activities.

The tablet will be shared with students as well.

Students will have the opportunity to engage in academic apps and programs digitally. This will allow students the opportunity to be exposed to diverse styles of learning and applying skills. The tablet will also be shared with students to record, edit and create multimedia projects in Reading and Social Studies.

The tablet will also be used by parents. Parents will have the opportunity to utilize the technology to apply for employment and education opportunities.

The current technology that is used is outdated and broken. Currently, the school budget is scarce and the educator is on a waiting list to receive new technology.
