My digital classroom

I am raising $ for my digital classroom. I teach high school English to juniors and seniors. My school is classified as a Title 1 school meaning that our population is low-income and disadvantaged; all of our students are eligible to receive a free or reduced lunch.
   As a high school English teacher I utilize Google classroom, I teach from Google slides and students turn in their assignments often using Google docs. They have adapted very well to this process that I just taught myself this year. I feel it is very important to make these seniors and juniors comfortable with and ready to compete in a digital world.
   Funds do not exist to have a classroom stocked w/a chromebook on every desk and occasionally going to a lab or wheeling in a computer cart is frankly not enough for these students to keep up with their counterparts in more affluent districts. Currently they use their phones for viewing assignments, taking notes and completing assignments. Because of the economic difficulties many of these students go home to, there are a number of problems my students face starting with not having a phone or a working phone. My goal is to create an environment where they can feel comfortable and know they will have the working tools to enhance their education.  
   I am looking at stocking my classroom with 35 chromebooks. They sell for $100-$125 dollars apiece. In addition I will need to run heavy extenxion cables because we are not wired for this. This would leave a small amount of $ for repair/replacement as needed. I would love to start the semester after the holidays in 2018 with this equipment. 
   This is my first experience w/Go Fund Me, but if there are communication lines open we would love to share our experience w/you. Please take this opportunity to help some young people that don't get a lot of help.
