PROJECT TITLE
Technology Funding

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
SGMS requests $50,000 in funding from the Chase Foundation broken down as follows:
(a) Technology – The School’s mission emphasizes technology-based tools, and our
technology resources need a major overhaul. Attached is a two-part quote for the
equipment we need, $29,875.00 for hardware and software that should meet most
of our requirements over the next five years, and $6,074 for printers and servers
good for five years and cartridges for a year. The technology request totals
$35,949.
(b) Security and Communication – Attached is an $8,015 quote for pagers, wireless
speakers, clocks, and related equipment. We need to establish better
communication for messages and security alerts.
(c) Library – We need desks, chairs, tables, filing cabinets and other furniture
throughout the School, but we are limiting our request in this area to $6,036 to
fund primarily the library. We will attempt to raise the additional money (approx.
$25,000) from other sources to meet this need throughout the School.

ORGANIZATION BACKGROUND
The mission of the Sidney Gutierrez Middle School (SGMS) is to provide a unique
middle school environment which emphasizes technology-based tools, innovative
curriculum and community participation and involvement. SGMS will expose students to
both basic and enhanced disciplines in an integrated way, allowing students to master
required skills and to develop habits necessary to life-long learning. Students will
develop skills that support and enhance their academic achievements such as teamwork,
self-sufficiency, work ethic and community service.
