Royal Oak technology Services


Royal Oak Schools has been awarded a grant through the Emergency Connectivity Fund to provide a new Chromebook for every student in our district. These Chromebooks are for educational use. They will not need to be returned at the end of the year; students will keep them in their possession throughout their schooling in Royal Oak. There is no cost to families to receive a Chromebook. Parents are required to complete a form prior to Chromebook distribution agreeing to district technology policies and practices. 

Your child will receive a Chromebook that has been assigned to them in our inventory system.  Their Chromebook will come in a protective case labeled with their name.  They will also receive a charging cord. 

Chromebooks will be distributed this Spring.  Your principal will share distribution dates as the Chromebooks are prepared.

This page contains important Chromebook information and resources for families. 


If you have questions about using your new Chromebook, or if you are experiencing any issues, please review the FAQ below.

All students in Royal Oak Schools have the option of having a district-issued Chromebook to use for their time in the district. Chromebooks are for use at home and at school, and classes will be expecting that students have a device available, either a personal computer or a district-issued Chromebook. The sign-up form is available with this link.



Google Apps for Education (or GAFE) is a collection of applications designed for schools. From calendars, email, websites, Docs and Forms, all the apps synchronize and flow seamlessly together to provide integration and collaboration for users within the district.

Google Apps for Education are accessible through any web browser making files and work accessible 24/7 whether at home, school or on a mobile device.

Royal Oak educators and students kindergarten through twelfth grade have access to Google Apps for Education through individual accounts established by the district. The use of Google Apps for Education accounts ties in with our strategic plan and goal to offer high quality opportunities for learning that will best equip our students with the skills they need to be successful in an increasingly digital world.


Families are under no obligation to supply children with laptops, tablets, smartphones, or other technology devices. The district is allowing those students who have technology the option to bring it to school with the permission of the teacher(s) to be used for instructional purposes. 

Per Board Policy 5136, such use shall be determined on a building and classroom basis. Guidelines for policy 5136 apply when students bring their personal electronic devices to school. Click here to view Guidelines for Personal Electronic Devices.
