South Loop School’s 1 to 1 Technology Campaign
We are pleased to announce the launch of our “GIVE BECAUSE” campaign to support our 1:1 technology initiative for our Middle School students.
190 laptop computers that is shared among all K-8 students.
30 Chromebooks are being utilized at our branch building for our K-1 students.
90 Macbooks & 70 Chromebooks are being utilized through a check out calendar system by our 2nd-8th grade classes.
With our current inventory, only 33% of our Middle School students could benefit from being part of a 1:1 classroom.
Next year we will have approximately 400 students in our middle school.
240 more devices to add to our current inventory to support 1:1 for 400 middle school students. OR
330 more devices to sustain the technology resources for our 2nd-4th grade students.
One cart of 36 Chromebooks costs approximately $12,250. We are aiming to purchase 9 Chromebook carts.
Our fundraising goal is $110,250.
To achieve this goal, we must raise around $340 per student.
BENEFITS? (GIVE BECAUSE…)
Students can access technology resources through out the whole school day, not just when their teachers check out the computers.
Teachers can effectively implement 21st century technology approaches to teaching such as:
Differentiated and Individualized Learning through Technology
1:1 eliminates textbooks and allows students to go paperless for assignments
Students will have more opportunities to be innovative through problem-based and project-based learning activities
1:1 technology fosters more opportunity for higher-order reasoning and critical analysis skills among students.
Prevent the loss of instructional time by assessing each grade level simultaneously.
Multimedia applications can influence and increase student engagement when creating artifacts to reflect what they have learned.
Parents can be part of the classroom through instant access to student work, grades, and stay up to date on current activities in the classroom.
Medical Compliance Requirements
Student health records are reviewed annually to ensure they are current. Families must show proof of required physical exams and immunizations by no later than October 1, 2015, or they will face possible exclusion from school per the Student Health Examinations, Immunizations, Dental Examinations and Eye Examinations Policy (Board Report # 08-0827- PO3, Section 704-.1).
