We are pleased that we have made our initial goal and grateful to everyone who has contributed to this project. By summer we will have a new PA system and hearing loop in our classroom.
But several of our folks have asked what we will do with the "extra" funds we collect, while others still insist they want to be a part of this effort to upgrade our classroom. So, here's what we've considered...
While the classroom is dismantled to install the ceiling speakers and the carpeting is torn up to install the hearing loop, what other improvements could we make? Two projects were obvious:
1. Upgrade our computer to one that has greater speed and more capabilities; and
2. Replace our aging projector with one that offers sharper images and clearer text and move the projector and screen to the center of the classroom for better viewing.
We have met with KU IT and the equipment vendor and have a plan to make these upgrades if we can raise the funds. Will you please help us?
There is still time to be a part of this important project. Thanks!
