1) YOUR CHILD'S REGISTRATION MUST BE COMPLETE TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR A CHROMEBOOK. Please make sure the process is complete before visiting campus. 

2) Incoming 6th grade students who have not returned their Chromebooks to their Elementary schools must do so prior to checking one out from RRMS.

3) Returning students who already have a Chromebook checked out to them will receive an email with instructions to follow. You do not have to come to school to complete the renewal process.

4) Families that have more than one child attending RRMS may come in the window for the oldest child and receive Chromebooks for each student.

 


Can we use our own personal computers instead of receiving a RRPS Chromebook? 

 


* All RRPS students will be issued an RRPS Chromebook.

* If every student is using the same equipment, it is easier for the teacher to help troubleshoot and support students from home

* We have all the necessary programs and settings set up on the Chromebook for your student including any software for standardized tests, etc.

* Your student will be using the SAME Chromebook all year regardless of 'in-school instruction" "hybrid" vs. "100% online" instruction. No sharing of equipment

* If we return to our "brick and mortar" building, your student will use the Chromebook at home and at school. They will not have to bring a personal laptop to a school setting and worry about theft, damage, etc.

* Our Technology department is able to troubleshoot, replace, and repair all RRPS equipment

* There will not be technical support for personal computers

* The RRPS Chromebooks have a filter in place to protect your child 

* The teacher has software to monitor activity, share their screens and interact with every student.


After reading and discussing the above reasoning, we would still like to opt out of accepting a RRPS Chromebook for our student(s)- Click here to fill out form
