Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 6

We are now able to provide six families at our school with internet for their Connect for Success computers. These students will now have the opportunity to extend their learning at home using the district provided math and reading programs, e-book checkout from the school and local libraries, and access the web for research and information. This is a valuable opportunity for these families and we appreciate the contribution to make it happen. Thank you!

 

Original Grant Overview

Goal

To provide Title 1 eligible students with an internet scholarship for wifi for their Connect For Success take-home computers.  

 

What will be done with my students

The Connect for Success computer program provides students with take-home laptop computers to access education programs and software. These computers allow our students an opportunity to meet and exceed their goals in iStation and STMath, which are reading and math programs designed to help students achieve grade level success. Students are also able to access other programs and beyond using these computers. Many even use the computer's software to write stories or create PowerPoint presentations.
Unfortunately, not every student has access to internet in their homes. There is a scholarship opportunity that will allow a student to have a WiFi hot spot for their computer for $150 for the year. With this grant, we would like to sponsor internet for students in five families at Bardmoor Elementary.  

 

Benefits to my students

The internet scholarship will provide internet access for one student (or in some cases, multiple students in one family) to use with their Connect for Success take-home computer.
Students who stay on track with their goals on the STMath and iStation programs, are 80 percent more likely to achieve at or above grade level on Florida's standardized tests. Having internet access will allow the students to stay on track at home on their own computer.  

 

Describe the Students

We are a Title 1 school where all students receive free lunch and breakfast. Our school has classes on all grade levels for students with autism. There are about 500 students at Bardmoor Elementary.  

 

Budget Narrative

This budget would allow the scholarships to be available for 5 of our students with the greatest need.
