  10. 10. Is it Affordable? Currently, a specialist is employed to provide interventions for targeted at risk students using a program like the Voyager Passport program and would require $67,041 per year. This provides much needed remediation for 40-50 students per year, but has no impact supporting student populations that are on grade level, or enriching student population that are above grade level. Average Teacher Salary Including Benefits $62,041 Cost of Materials Per Year $5,000 Projected Salary & Benefits over 5 years $310,205 Cost of materials over 5 years $25,000 Total Salary and Materials over 5 years $335,205
  11. 11. Yes It Is! C2C’s Technology Plan would require a slightly higher investment of $46,095 during the first 5 years. But, would require less to maintain for each year after. Initial Purchases Over 5 Years $288,700 Fees Associated With Maintaining Programs Over 5 Years $92,600 Total Costs Over 5 Years $381,300 Current Intervention Specialist $67,041 per year thereafter Fees Associated With Maintenance of the Software Side of C2C’s Plan $23,000 per year thereafter Costs Associated With Maintenance of the Hardware Side of C2C’s Plan $20,000 per year thereafter Total Costs to Maintain C2C’s Plan $43,000 per year thereafter Difference or Savings $24,041 per year thereafter
