Grant Category: STEM
Funding Goal: $1415.92
First-grade classrooms will be provided with laptops to use throughout each school day. This will be a resource that can be used for various reasons including interventions and enrichment, lesson extensions, adaptations and modifications of activities, and research in the classroom. The laptops will allow teachers to use their best practices and reach all students in the classroom in
a variety of subjects each day.
Our school funding has allowed for one laptop cart to be available for teachers to sign out and two computer labs to take your whole class to. As a title one school, many of the young students come into school with minimal prior knowledge of reading and math skills. 44% of the students coming into first grade are below grade level in reading and many students are below grade level in math. These laptops will allow teachers to use them as supplemental activities for these students, as well as provide enrichment for students above performing grade level.
