My Students

Remember the old card catalog in your school library? What if you had no way to look up a book?

Our enrollment is 560 students with over 70% at or below level.

Our students love to read and we use Accelerated Reader to help improve their reading scores. Our students use the library computers to help them find books in their level that match their interest. Unfortunately, our computers are so old, Microsoft no longer supports the operating system so our IT department has no choice but to remove them from our school to protect the integrity of the whole network.

My Project

Our goal is to acquire 4 new web based computers for use in the library. With 560 students it's what we need. I'll be asking for one at a time in order to get my project funded quicker. The students will once again be able to search the library collection for what they need and they will be able to take the Accelerated Reader quizzes as well.

With the capability to find the books our students need to meet and surpass their reading goals our students will be more prepared for their core curriculum and standards based testing.
