Your Penny at Work: Schools Receive New Audio Enhancements to Help Students Better Hear Instruction
Students in 177 schools across the School District will hear their teachers more clearly thanks to funds from the penny sales tax referendum. Systems are being installed or repaired in every instructional area of the schools to help teachers gain the attention of their students and keep them engaged without the need to raise their voice.
The state-of-the-art enhancements include amplifiers in the ceilings, speakers around the class, mics that hang from the teacher’s neck and hand-held microphones to allow students to also be heard.
Fifty-four percent of the project has already been completed with the remaining projects expected to finish by June.
