Chromebook Distribution Details
RRHS, along with School District 27J, utilizes a One-2-Web platform for instruction and learning for our young scholars to ensure they have access to the tools and resources essential to learning for the year 2041 and beyond. Returning students will need to bring their school Chromebook they used the previous year. New and 9th grade students will be issued a Chromebook on Thursday, August 10th. All students are issued a Chromebook enabling our young scholars access to all educational tools in & outside of the classroom. For most classes, students will not be issued textbooks as all the materials for core content classes are being migrated to digital resources in 27J. Teachers will leverage the One-2-Web platform to enrich, engage, & develop student learning through the appropriate, and relevant, use of technology.
Technology will be used when it is the best educational tool. However, not all learning happens on a screen. Teachers will use the best research-based instructional practices (high-tech, low-tech, no-tech) to expose students to a variety of learning experiences and to prepare them for future post-secondary endeavors (careers/college/armed services/etc.).
A $55 per year fee for use, maintenance, insurance and licensing will be assessed to all students. To offset this fee, many core class fees were eliminated or reduced.
Detailed information on 27J issued Chromebooks, including information on Chromebook Damage/Repair Insurance for families, is available by clicking on the following link: One-2-Web Family Guide
As part of our safe school actions, Students CANNOT substitute a school/district issued Chromebook with a personal device as they are not allowed access to all materials necessary to support classroom learning, as well as being unable to connect to the district wifi network.
