Technology

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.
