Chromebook Requirements for 2020-2021

In February 2020, our Digital Learning Committee announced that there is a new Chromebook model that will be the required device for new students for the 2020-2021 school year. Current students will continue to use the Chromebooks they already have; there is no need for current students to purchase this newer model.

All new students, grades 9 through 12, will be required to bring an Acer Chromebook Spin 11 to school for 2020-2021. The current model numbers are R751T, CP311-H1, CP311-1HN. Any of these models are acceptable. Families may choose to purchase either a new or refurbished device. Students do not need a stylus for their Chromebook. This Chromebook is available online at a variety of retailers including AmazonSmile, Walmart, Best Buy and Acer Recertified. Financial assistance is available. Please contact Lisa Huddleston for more information.

Digital Citizenship
Responsible use of technology requires discipline and thoughtfulness. We aspire to better ourselves and our community with our resources. Technology should enhance our lives, learning, and relationships with others. To this end, RCHS has adopted the following standards from the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE)*:
  • Students of our community cultivate and manage their digital identity and reputation and are aware of the permanence of their actions in the digital world.
  • Students of our community engage in legal and ethical behavior when using technology, including social interactions online or on networked devices.
  • Students of our community demonstrate an understanding of and respect for the rights and obligations of using and sharing intellectual property.
  • Students of our community manage their personal data to maintain digital privacy and security and are aware of data-collection technology used to track their navigation online.
