Fox Tech Magnet High School is a college preparatory campus and we are working towards a 1:1 initiative so that every student has their own laptop (chromebook) to use for the duration of their 4 years in high school at Fox Tech.
Many of our students are in dual credit via UTSA or SAC or dual enrollment courses via On Ramps at UT-Austin that require them to work online in order to access their curriculum and/or course materials. Teachers on campus also use Google classroom, Khan Academy and other databases regularly for curriculum enhancement. Even though we have desktop computers on campus, students are not able to take those devices home and cannot do much needed homework once they leave our campus.
The 1:1 initiative would allow ALL students the same opportunity to complete work at home and on weekends, not just those fortunate enough to already have devices. Any and all donations are important to meet our goal of raising funds to purchase 450 laptops for the entire student body.
We are excited to see how this initiative will enhance student learning and student results over the next four years.
Thank you in advance for your valued support. All donations are tax deductible.
