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
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 @
