Classroom Interactive Panels & Collaborative Space Audio/Visual Refresh
Purchase and install Interactive panels, which remove cords and mobile projectors to increase learning space in elementary school classrooms. In all classrooms, interactive panels act as shared computers on the wall, transforming the learning environment.
Classroom instruction is being affected by old projectors that are not working or intermittently showing error codes. The installation of flat panels will replace all projectors in classrooms along with providing teachers additional tools in the classroom.
Bond 2017 included funding to build Danielson MS (opened in 2020); Tarvin ES (opened in 2021); and North ES (opened in 2022). In these new schools, a “new standard” was created in which school buildings include interactive panels.
Bond 2021’s Proposition B passed, and with it funds for the interactive panel displays. Funds for the installation of the interactive panels and labor to replace all classroom projectors passed in the 2023 bond. Bond 2023 also included interactive panels or an audio/video refresh in collaborative spaces outside of the classroom, such as campus cafetoriums, campus auditoriums and libraries.
