As Ballard High School’s enrollment increases, so does the need for additional technology!
The need for additional technology is now critical.
Projected enrollment for 2015-16 is 1,705, which will make BHS the largest high school in Seattle.
The funding from this campaign would be used to purchase a cart of 30 iPads. These iPads would provide much needed additional resources and would be used by students when working on research projects, using educational apps, reading electronic books and creating multi-media projects.

The BHS Foundation has been supporting the library for 15 years. The funds from our last fundraiser were used to purchase science, technology, social science and history books and audio-visual materials. These additional resources have made a great impact on the academic program at BHS. The AV materials are constantly being used by teachers and circulation statistics show that use of the science and technology books has more than doubled in the last 5 years, from 222 books in the school year of 2008-09 to 496 books in the 2013-2014 school year! The purchase of 30 iPads will continue to support this academic success.
