It is my responsibility to purchase the supplies for my computer labs including replacement keyboards, mice, ink and toner for the color printer, cameras and video devices for the students use, CD – Roms, and flash drives. I am going to use a portion of this budget each year to purchase hand held devices such as iPod’s, iPads, Tablets, and/or Laptops for student use. We will also be having fundraisers to replace/update the lab furniture and help with the purchase of hand held devices.<br />(I requested the district technology plan but haven’t been able to acquire it at this time. I will update this presentation with that information as soon as I receive the correct information)<br />
