We utilize funds to pay for Math specialist, in-school tutorials and pull-out programs. We also, utilize our funds for the effective use of technology in the classroom. We have incorporated documents cameras, projectors, and high-tech calculators for math. In Science and Special Education classes, we have implemented laptops and technology software to help assist in those two areas. Also, Smart boards, video streaming, and student clickers have been introduced to help facilitate the learning in those particulars areas that we feel will benefit the most (math, science & English). We have provided our teachers with additional professional development training to help assist with teaching at-risk, LEP and multi-cultural students.
