Virginia Department of Education: Virginia is for Lovers….of Summer Learning!

    When our school opened, we were on the cutting edge of technology. Staff have laptops which work on docking stations, and limits teacher mobility. Due to funding concerns at state and federal levels, we have been unable to maintain our momentum. Laptops that were once state-of-the-art have been used and reached a point of longevity that renders them difficult to effectively operate. We hope to provide students access to Smart Boards, Tablets, iPads, Doc Cams, Skype, and updated laptops. We would like to provide desktop computers in a dedicated computer lab. Because we are a school of not only general education learners, but also home to a full spectrum of Special Education students, we also wish to utilize programs for re-teaching and extension. Many of these programs operate through software-based means, which are beyond our current reality. We appreciate your consideration.
