RUSD to Offer Chromebook Laptops for Families so Students can Bring Classroom Learning Home

09/02/2015

In partnership with CDW-G, a technology vendor, RUSD is providing an opportunity for RUSD families to purchase Chromebook laptops, the same computers students use inside RUSD classrooms, for their child. The goal of this program is to provide students more access to technology and online learning tools when they are not in school.

“Parents asked whether we could provide an opportunity for them to purchase the same technology their students are using in the classroom,” said Superintendent Dr. Lolli Haws. “CDW-G stepped up to offer a great opportunity for our families and we are thrilled to be able to put more learning tools in the hands of our students. Tools they can use at school as well as at home.”

Students will be able to bring the Chromebooks to school for use in the classroom if they choose. This means that more students will have regular access to technology. It also means that parents can support their children in learning at home.

“Some of the online learning programs we’re using in the classroom like Compass Learning and First in Math are extremely effective when students use them consistently,” said Haws. “If students have laptops at home, we know that they’re very likely to utilize these programs more often.”

Families are able to purchase a Chromebook for $267.84 and will be required to use their student’s ID to complete the purchase.

To purchase a Chromebook, click here. Once online, you will be asked to fill out a brief survey. You will need your child’s student ID number. At the end of the brief survey, your username and password will be supplied. Please use that username and password to log on to the online storefront and follow the step-by-step instructions to purchase a Chromebook.
