Where do you find the best use of funds is?
I have funds that need to be used by Oct.
Some for Equipment, some for re-stocking
I'm not sure where to start. We did go 1:1 this year.
What does your your program specialize in? Classes etc?
Right now I have
Animal Science (2 classes)
ALS Animal Science (dual credit with Purdue)
8th grade (1 Sem)
7th grade (6 weeks)
In future hope to have:
Fundamentals of Ag (freshmen) year long
NRCS year long
Hort year long
Pretty much everything but Ag Mech
I would ultimately say it depends on how many labs you would like to do or if you want to focus on integrating technology. Materials for labs is always a plus because it allows you to reinforce what you teach in the classes.
I know that October is almost over, but I would think, by the list of classes that you have to offer and plan for the future, and with your new 1:1 program, I would spend money on scientific laboratory supplies. I think one of the best curriculums available is CASE and a lot of those labs require Vernier Lab Sensors. You could get a set for each computer or for so many computers/students to share. Also, I would think kits from Lab Aids would be valuable as well. Good luck!!
