This past Thursday, the South Gwinnett Cluster Foundation provided students at R.L. Norton Elementary a matching grant for a Student Response System.
The request came from LSTC (Local School Technology Coordinator) at Norton Elementary, Ms. Jennifer Martin. According to the grant application, “The introduction of student response system technology would provide a quick, anonymous way to evaluate student understanding of concepts introduced in the classroom, science lab, resource, and Special Area classes. The technology could also be used as part of district wide testing.”
The presentation preceded the Program “Music in our School” with a warm welcome from Principal Dr. Terry Watlington. Present were Board Members Jimmy Norton, Kelly McAloon, and Treasurer Angela Sneed.
“Durable and versatile technology is an easy grant for us to consider” said Mrs. Sneed. “We want to make learning more potent and teaching more effective”.
The South Gwinnett Cluster Foundation's mission is to establish partnerships with our schools, residents, and business communities to promote the academic enrichment, growth and success of the students within the South Gwinnett Cluster.
