How They'll Use the Award

In our Two-way bilingual Immersion, 75% Latino, K-8 school, with 1111 students, we are steadfastly working to bring our curriculum and ALL our students up to meet 21st century standards and expectations. We are finding it challenging to meet the curricular demands of the newly adopted CA State Standards with limited technological devices. With this money, we hope to purchase Chromebooks that will allow our teachers to take advantage of all the wonderful possibilities for intervention and enrichment we have available in newly adopted, Common Core-aligned textbooks. With additional capacity, we will be better able to support student learning and further shrink the achievement gap that persists between ethnic and socio-economic groups in our school.
