Whiteboard Needed for Special Education Class

My special education students need a dry erase markerboard.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I work at a special education school, servicing emotionally disturbed, learning disabled, and other special education classified students. Our students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds. Over 95% of the student body is eligible for free lunch and over 90% receive public assistance. The school’s ethnicity is as follows: 60% Hispanic, 30% African American, 8% Caucasian, and 2% Asian. These factors come together and place our children at a huge disadvantage, but we are committed to providing them with a rigorous academic and therapeutic program. I have the pleasure of teaching United States History, Global History, and English courses to these students. I have been teaching with a chalkboard throughout my tenure at this school, and feel it is time to upgrade to a dry erase board. I use my current board on a daily basis to present lesson material and provide examples of concepts, but the chalk is very dusty and messy. This is particularly harmful to my students with asthma. We would all appreciate your donation towards a dry erase markerboard! Despite their special learning needs, most of my students plan to attend college or trade school when they graduate. They are encouraged to reach for their dreams! Thank you so much for considering this proposal.
