    TECHNOLOGY WILL CLOSE THE LITERACY GAP

    Schools Need YOU to Help Close the Digital Gap 

    eClass and BYOD.....Bring Your Own Device 
    Students bring their own smart devices (cell phones, tablets, laptops, e-readers, etc.) to the classroom.

    The Challenge to BOYD: Not Every Student Has a Device

    In the classroom, students might share a device and work in teams or pairs. But the full implementation of eClass means having access at home or anywhere.

    THIS IS WHERE YOU CAN HELP

    Help close the digital gap by providing devices for our students or funds for the schools to buy them for students.

    Schools need these type of devices: iPads, Chromebooks, eReaders and smart phones. They also need smart boards—large screen, interactive internet-connected.

    the future!

    HELP ARTIST AND ART TEACHER GET TO TURKEY Jenyfer Ojodeagua, an eighth grade student at Summerour Middle School in Norcross, has won first place in the Atlantic Institute Art and Essay contest, held recently at Clayton State College.
     
    Her artwork interpreting the theme, "Kindness Without Borders: Open Eyes, Open Hearts in our Global Village," is shown here. The goal of this contest was to bridge cultures to create a "better world of peace and understanding" and to "develop public awareness for diverse cultures, beliefs, traditions and opinions." The grand prize for this award is a paid trip to Istanbul, Turkey for both her and her teacher.  
     
    Though the trip itself is paid for, the airfare and administrative fees are not. Jenyfer and her teacher, Mrs. Lisa Guilford, need funds to help pay for their round-trip ticket and administration fees. A crowd funding site has been setup in order to raise the funds that Jenyfer and Mrs. Guilford need to make this dream come true!

     Imagine One Teacher for Each Student
    How can there be one teacher for each student? In Gwinnett County Public Schools, technology is helping to individualize classroom instruction. It’s like having a teacher for every single child because the teacher can use new tools to meet each student’s learning needs.

     BYOD.....Bring Your Own Device 

    The Norcross Cluster Schools Partnership (NCSP) benefits the elementary and middle schools in Norcross and Peachtree Corners.

    We collect school supplies, books and help raise money for the schools.
     
    All but two schools in the cluster are Title I schools indicating a high poverty level, which at some schools is as high as 90%.
    While we know poverty does not translate into poor student scores; it is true that students from poverty level homes often do not have any books of their own. Zachary's contribution will enable NCSP to purchase books for these students.
