We have limited supply money for technology. Only a select few of our students have classrooms with smart boards and teachers who are trained to use them. Ours is a rural school and the students often never travel more than 25 miles from home or school unless we procure donations. I have been on a list for the next procurement toward technological upgrade for 4 years. My students are still waiting. We just this week received papers telling us activities, procedures, and standards to implement science experiments but no supplies or money. For math, we have books but no up-to-date interactive technology to further our students' understanding of the concepts. Yet we are to compete with schools supported by Disney, Universal, and NASA. The first science concept on the new papers has to do with differences in soils. Our out dated books have only part of a chapter dealing with this. We are brainstorming and possibly contacting the Ag Center916 miles away) to see if they would do a demonstration as the once did with the Florida Cattlemens' Association.(This was for 4th grade not our grade). We would have to provide money for buses if they agreed to do it for the younger children. These are deserving children who need every advantage to learn science and math. We have made 9 years of A on FCAT the state test until this last Spring it is now B. Please help us raise our teaching and learning to the 21st century.
