The district Instructional Technology equipment budget for 2010-2011 was partially funded ($22,656).  The following purchases were made (Fall 2010):

  • 12 LCD projectors  (with carts and extension cables) for high school (to complete all classrooms)
  • 5 LCD projectors (with carts and extension cables)  for Kennedy (to be shared by classroom teachers)
  • 5 LCD projectors (with carts and extension cables) for McDevitt (to be shared by classroom teachers)

note: the lack of funding necessary to support LCD projectors installed in classrooms in the middle schools has altered the district objective.  Instead we will provide 5 LCD projectors to middle schools to share throughout the building.
