All students in grades Kinder through 6th grade have an iPad to use at school. Students in grades 7th through 12th grades use Chromebooks.
Some schools get to take their Chromebooks home. All high school students and Apollo, Liberty, and West Junior Highs take their Chromebooks home.
All students have access to GSuite (Docs, Slides, Sheets, Gmail, etc.) using their district g.risd.org account. Find out more under District Resources. If you need help resetting your Google password, see your campus LITE (librarian) to find out who can reset it.
Each K-6 student is issued a specific device for individual use throughout the school year. The full-sized iPad measures 9.7 inches and must remain in its protective case at all times.
All activity on your student iPad can be monitored by your teacher(s) through the use of Apple Classroom.
Follow all school and classroom rules while using your device. Approved apps can be downloaded from Self-Service only if approved by your teacher.
Secondary students (7-12) are issued a touch-screen Chromebook and charger at the beginning of the school year. All devices include a protective case, and you may be asked to purchase insurance if students on your campus take devices home at night.
While using your Chromebook, a tool called GoGuardian allows your teacher to monitor and restrict the sites you may visit. It also allows administrators to pull up reports about your activities online.
Follow all school and classroom rules while using your device. Students must use their official district Google account (g.risd.org) to login to their Chromebook and can only add extensions approved by district administrators. If your device is broken or not working properly, please follow campus guidelines to report these problems.
No matter which type of device you might be using, these resources are helpful for all students.
