Dozier's "Eye on Tech" Corner

Moving forward by keeping our "eye" on technology!

This year again, Dozier Elementary will continue its "Eye on Tech" Campaign to try and gain more tech resources for our school. In working with the BING Grant, the formatting is a little different. To get into the top fifteen slots, we have to “vote" for our school.. The 4th and 5th grade teachers and several students worked to get this up online and we are hoping that you can do this to help us get “votes” to make the semi finals.

Shown are the students who were involved with Dozier Elementary’s rare technology filming venture to gain money for technology resources. (Back Row) Jean Paul Touchet, Drake Goldston, Mason Granger (Middle Row) Leah Vu, Logan Broussard, Morgan Alleman, Brennan Felix, Andrew Sonnier, Chrisitan Prysybyz. (Bottom Row) Brae Lee Suire, Jada Braly, Hannah Granger and Caroline Poche. MEET OUR STARS HERE!


Dozier Elementary “Take 2”


Upon Dozier Elementary’s return to their school plant last year and completing their technology plan, the faculty set goals by launching a campaign to receive more technology integration resources.


Riding on the cusp of last year’s successful Digital Wish campaign for smaller items, leaders Karla Toups and Natalie Hebert, along with their technology committee have already begun working on this year’s “Eye on Tech” campaign. Long terms school needs lie with upgrading classroom computers, replacing a computer mobile lab and Promethean Boards for classrooms which do not have any at this time. With massive district budget cuts, the educators at Dozier Elementary know that the reality lies with needing assistance, so the school is working hard on attaining grants and possible donations.


In September, the school decided to take a long shot and applied for the national BING Grant which involves a $100,000 prize and three $50,000 leveled prizes. (Elementary, Middle School, High School).  


This grant in particular involved three categories. The first was a narrative, while the second part involved photos to show needs. The 3rd component was creating a student video representing the whole school.  Using the school’s new flip cameras, several 4th and 5th grade students worked on a 3 minute “Keeping Our Eye on Tech” commercial stating the needs, the reason for their need and how donations would assist the school.  The school submitted their entry and now the process of voting begins. The commercial and more information on “voting” for the school is located on the Dozier Elementary website @
