Media Center Upgrades

The Foundation has donated $37,300 to the District to accomplish a major renovation of the High School's Media Center. Initially, the Foundation provided $7,300 in 2015 to finance the upgrade/replacement of 22 computers in the high school Media Center.

The funding was used to replace old Windows-based technology with Chromebooks and large LED screens, using 
cloud-based computing. This configuration conforms to the District's evolving technology architecture and provided faster and more efficient platforms for accomplishing research on the internet and taking on-line standardized tests, such as the PARCC. Recently, the Foundation provided another $30,000 to the District to purchase new furniture and workstations that will facilitate the ability of students to collaborate on team projects and to better share ideas.

Longer term, the Foundation wants to raise funds to accomplish upgrades in the Media Centers of the middle and grammar schools to bring them more in line with 21st century media center capabilities and functionality.

The Foundation has an ongoing CrowdRise campaign to raise funding for upgrading the Media Centers/libraries in the District's 4 schools You can support this effort by visiting our Media Centers Upgrade CrowdRise page. Give whatever you can -- every donation makes a difference, no matter how small. All donations are tax deductible.
