School raises funds for tech upgrades

Daily Reporter staff reports

McCORDSVILLE — McCordsville Elementary School has raised more than $54,000 in 18 months to help improve technology for students and staff on campus.

Several technology improvements have been made in classrooms with funding raised through several resources, including grants, corporate contributions and old-fashioned fundraising.

A total of $54,945 was raised. The effort allows for more than $2,000 in upgrades including a new projector, document camera and an interactive whiteboard for each classroom.

The project began in the fall of 2013 and approximately $11,000 is still needed to provide the final stage of classroom technology upgrades for the entire building.

All but five classrooms have received the upgrades. Those classrooms are scheduled to be upgraded later this year.
