Technology Requirements for Grades 4 - 12
Students in Grades 4 & 5 are required to bring a Chromebook or similar small, portable device to school daily. Students in Grades 6-12 are required to bring a Chromebook or laptop to school daily. Laptops (or netbooks) are used extensively during the school day for research, collaboration, and communication, and students are responsible for bringing a fully charged and operational device to school each day. Students are encouraged to bring their chargers with them to school to be available as needed.
Due to the proliferation of computer viruses, it is recommended that all student laptops (or netbooks) have a virus protection program installed . A virus protection program protects the student's laptop as well as the school's network from malicious and potentially damaging software.
We are a “Google Apps” school, so each student will be provided with a “grandviewprep.org” account which will be used for all school related work, email messages, etc. Students will be expected to work collaboratively utilizing the Google Apps including Mail, Drive, etc.
Our network operates under a wireless network, so your laptop (or netbook) must be wi-fi ready.
