Mrs. Stewin from Chicago IL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

To Scan or Not the Scan? That Is the Question!

Help me give my students and their parents access to technology that will allow them to scan and share documentation that is necessary to enroll in preschool.

My Students

Our preschool students are the kindest and most lovable people in the world. They look forward to coming to school every day and arrive with a smile on their face and a hug for those that greet them. Our preschool students are enthusiastic about learning! They love to explore, read books, and sing and dance with friends. Our preschool is a safe, exciting, and fun-filled environment for our students to learn and grow. Unfortunately, getting to school each day is a challenge for some of our young learners.

Our Pre-K through 8th-grade elementary school is located in a predominately African-American urban community in Illinois that is plagued by crime, violence, and poverty.

Our school is part of a large metropolitan school district that has high expectations for student learning... BUT is severely underfunded.

My Project

We have many students/families within our school and school community that are homeless or have moved several times due to financial reasons. During these periods of transition and crisis, some families may have misplaced or simply do not have the necessary documentation needed to enroll their child/children in school.

Being able to scan, upload, and fax materials to various agencies eases the burden on the family and allows us an opportunity to enroll student(s) in school.

Our center provides support to parents and families, and helps them access the necessary documentation needed for the enrollment process. Being able to support families in this process shows them that we care, that we value them as parents and educational partners,, and that we understand the importance of getting their child registered and enrolled in school.
