RSS believes that devices and Internet access can amplify learning inside and outside of school. Today’s learner can create, connect, and solve problems through the use of computers and smartphones in ways they cannot do in a traditional classroom where devices are not allowed. RSS students will use technology in respectful ways and technological literacy will be addressed in all classes, as we are committed to helping students navigate the digital world.
Therefore, we are encouraging students to bring their own device to school each day. We suggest a Dell Chromebook, which ranges in cost between $219 and $299. We are utilizing as many funds from our budget as we can to have some extra laptops, but primarily we are relying on family support. Guidelines and technology agreements will be shared once school begins, so that we are all on the same page with our expectations.
There are two ways to get a discount on a Dell Chromebook for your student:
1) 2% member discount for K-12 students (sign up through this link)
2) $20 discount for Dell preferred account members (the approval for a Dell preferred account will be based on your credit score. No annual fee or prepayment fee).
