Why the Need for Project LEAP? ¡ ¡ ¡ Analyses of MCAS data in Why the Need for Project LEAP? ¡ ¡ ¡ Analyses of MCAS data in math at both schools indicate a need to develop instructional strategies that will improve the level of achievement. Both schools are identified as in need of improvement in the subgroups of special needs and low income students on Cycle III Accountability reports. As a result of low proficiency scores in mathematics on the 2004 MCAS, both school councils have created improvement goals in mathematics achievement that focus on regular education, special education, and low income students. 6

Why the Need for Project LEAP? ¡ ¡ Technology plans in both districts address Why the Need for Project LEAP? ¡ ¡ Technology plans in both districts address student and teacher proficiency in computer applications as well as in the integration of technology into content areas to improve student achievement. 25% of the middle school students in Hull and 16% of WMS students are from low income families, many of whom do not have computers available to them at home. A one-to-one laptop environment will provide these students with additional access time, thus enhancing their technology competencies. 7
