VI. Promethean, e-beams, and smart boards for the classrooms.
(As noted, the cost for a Promethean package begins at about $2000 per classroom. This includes the board, the software, the pens, and installation. It is our desire to provide Prometheans to our Math and Science classrooms first in order to boost test scores in those areas. This would include 8 classrooms @ $2,000 each.)
