Headphones Still Needed

Each student in our building will have at least 20 minutes per day using adaptive educational software. The software provides feedback to teachers about student success and also allows students to practice skills in literacy or numeracy to are specific to their current needs. In order to provide some comfort and reduce risk of germs being spread. Names will be placed on the headphones and this will ensure each student uses their own pair of head phones each time they use a program that requires sound.
