Funding for 2012/2013 School Year
Recently the EEF awarded Salt Creek Elementary with $20,000 for the 2012/2013 school year. Funding will be used to support the technology support staff and enhance their collection of mobile devices. Technology is integrated throughout all of the students at Salt Creek. Students have written comments on blogs and produced creative stories on sites like Storybird. They have also watched video to enhance their math instruction from Khan Academy to name a few. These are just a few examples of how Salt Creek students are using technology to support and enhance every facet of learning. The technology support staff is needed to continue moving the school into the 21st Century.
