    $55,000 Goal........        $31,685 raised:

    We are MORE than halfway there!

    This year, your donations will continue to help integrate and support Technology:

    To extend the lifespan of past technology investments the PTSA established a Tech Operating Fund. It is essential to set aside money today to cover the cost of future equipment maintenance and repairs.

    With the use of iPads and Airserver, teachers are able to differentiate instruction in class and students are using apps and digital media presentations to enhance classroom learning. Currently, sixty-four iPads are used across 10 classrooms and in 6 different departments. Because of these enhanced learning tools, student engagement has gone up in Science, Math, Social Studies, and Language Arts. For Special Education students, Math scores have gone up as well.

    2016-2017 Tech Operating Fund Allocation:  $4,000
    2016-2017 District Technical Support:  $3,000
    IPads and AirServer:  $14,000
