At the time the grant was submitted, there was one very old camera shared between the Tech Guru and the Yearbook elective classes (80 students annually). It is difficult to create a yearbook worth selling without high quality photos. The new technology will allow more students to participate in the process of creating the yearbook, as well as updating the website, creating and editing school-wide educational videos, and maintaining a digital bulletin board. This equipment is necessary to help educate students on how to utilize technology that is becoming prominent in today’s world.
