Technology Fund Established

April 2011

Dear Alumni and Friends of Central Linn,

New Oregon Dept. of Education standards require all students be proficient in the use of technology by the end of the 8th grade.  This puts Central Linn in somewhat of a Catch-22 situation: we support the goal, but don’t have the financial means to purchase the necessary equipment. To reach proficiency, we must get equipment into the classrooms for students and teachers to access on a daily basis

Document cameras are standard equipment in most schools–-they function like overhead projectors, but require no transparencies. They project any object in color and 3-D and, with a computer, enable teachers to use web-based teaching material and students to share and present their work using PowerPoint or handwritten materials. One document camera and projector set costs $1,250.00. We need 23 sets to supply all classrooms.

Student computers in classrooms are also needed as many elementary classes get only 30 minutes in the lab once a week. About 30% of our students have no computer at home; making access at school even more critical. A few computers in each classroom would give students daily access and help teachers better serve remedial and gifted students. Three computers and a printer would run about $2,000 per classroom.

Thus, in addition to seeking grants and equipment donations, the District wishes to build a technology fund dedicated to buying classroom equipment.  All donations are tax-deductible. Business or personal dedications can be arranged, if desired. Checks should be made out to Central Linn School District with Technology Fund on the notation line you or you can donate online through the Central Linn website: http://www.centrallinn.k12.or.us/community/alumni/index.php

Thank you for helping Central Linn acquire critical education technology.

some classes will not even post on the class registration page for some reason.  I guess that they will not believe me that I am not going to post every thing.  All they have to is ask me not to it up there.
