Weathersfield school gets donation to purchase new technology



Published: Thu, December 16, 2010 @ 5:01 p.m.

MINERAL RIDGE — Weathersfield Board of Education has accepted a $5,000 donation from Seaborn Elementary School Home and School Association to be used for new technology at the school.

Superintendent Damon Dohar explained that the funds will be used toward the purchase of four Mimio machines at Seaborn, which work like Smart Boards in the classroom.

A blackboard is used as a screen on which to view computer information being used in the classroom as a learning tool.

The Mimio machines are slightly cheaper than Smart Boards, Dohar said. He hopes to purchase at least three and possibly four machines in 2011, and the donation will include professional training for teachers on how to use them.

The board also accepted a donation of $468 from the deacon board of First Presbyterian Church of Mineral Ridge for the purchase of books and materials for the Seaborn library.

What are they doing with the rest of the $5000? We just purchased 28 Mimio's at a cost of $13,400... If they are only getting four for $5000, they are getting ripped off. (And no, we didnt get a discount for ordering 28.)
