According to Cristo Rey Dallas College Prep Director of Development Susan Jenevein,
“My goal for 2016 is to provide each of our incoming students (100% of whom are at or below the federal poverty level) with a Google Chromebook – a goal of $40,000. Our students do all of their work on these Chromebooks at school, and since many do not have computers or even wireless access at home, these laptops would allow them to do their homework electronically. It is imperative that we are computer-based so we prepare our students for college and future employment.
“We are hoping to reach our goal with a GoFundMe campaign to raise $40,000 in February 2016, providing each of our 128 incoming freshmen with a Chromebook that they will use for all four years at Cristo Rey Dallas College Prep.
