The funds will be used to purchase four (4) sets “of Easi-Speak Recording microphones for student and teacher use in the library, classroom and therapy rooms. These hand held recorders interface with computers which can capture student work to be shared with students, their parents and for teacher record keeping. The microphones and docking stations will be stored in the library and circulated to all the buildings so there is an opportunity for different groups of students across grade levels to share this new technology.
