New Laptops for Grades 3-5
This year Rockdale County Public Schools' one-to-one laptop initiative, called Learning Reimagined, will include grades 3-5. This means all students in grades 3-5 will be issued a laptop soon after the beginning of the new school year. Students will eventually be required to take their laptop home with them just like they take textbooks home how.
We strongly encourage you to purchase insurance against theft at the beginning of the school year, possibly as an addition to your home owner's insurance. We have a third-party laptop theft insurance option here.
In preparation for this, we will be offering a number of classes and resources for student and parents about digital citizenship and the appropriate use of technology to help keep our children safe.
One important resource for families is Common Sense Media (https://www.commonsensemedia.org/educators/parents), which includes a great number of family resources. Particularly, the Parent Tip Sheets (https://www.commonsensemedia.org/educators/family-tip-sheets) are helpful for parents to help steer conversations with their children as we move into this exciting new digital initiative.
