Helping Start a Calculator Loan Pool

The Fairfax County Stuart High School Math Department had a dream to create a calculator loan pool to offer any student the opportunity to borrow a calculator for class or take home for homework purposes. A TI-84 is a $100+ calculator that can sometimes be too expensive for families and students to purchase when they have more basic needs to meet. By developing a loan pool, the Stuart High School math team knows that they can support more students than they otherwise would. We decided to help them get started with a donation of six TI-84s. Supporting students with the tech tools they need to succeed ultimately supports workforce development. And as, Math Department Chair, Ms. Mulcahy, said “perhaps one day I can say that one of my students works at Jeffries Technology Solutions.”
