Ritenour High School's 1:1 technology initiative reinforces the 21st century skills students need in order to be successful in college and careers.As part of this initiative, every RHS student receives a Chromebook at the start of the school year to use both in school and at home throughout the year. View the Parent/Student Chromebook Handbook.
This initiative is not centered on one device, but rather the transformational teaching and learning opportunities for our students that will help them reach higher levels of success. This kind of 21st century learning focuses on increased student engagement and higher-level skills to problem solve, multitask, think creatively, collaborate effectively and communicate globally.
Some paper and pencil tasks already have been replaced with technological interactions in Ritenour classrooms preK-12. Chromebooks have replaced some traditional textbook and notebook tasks. Through the use of technology, students are able to access a multitude of online resources that were previously unavailable using traditional methods. Materials are available 24/7, which encourages work to be done outside of the traditional school day.Note: Aug. 3, 2021
Ritenour K-12 students, both in-person and virtual learning students, will again be issued Chromebooks and technology to use for learning this year. All Ritenour K-12 families will need to either enroll in the insurance plan or decline coverage online at https://www.one2onerisk.com/prior to receiving a device. Parents/Guardians must complete this step before their child will be issued a device. No devices will be handed out to students until the parent or guardian has completed this step.
You will need to know your child’s student ID number to complete this process. This is available in the parent portal. If you do not have access to the parent portal, contact your child’s school and provide them with your email address. You must have an email address to connect with the parent portal.
Students in full-virtual learning must have their device prior to Aug. 25, which is the first day of school. Therefore a parent/guardian must complete this step prior to Aug. 23.
Information about the benefits of device insurance can be found here.
Families who need to pay in cash for insurance can do so at your school, and will receive a code to enter in the online insurance registration process. Although families are strongly encouraged to sign up for the $20 insurance plan for each device, families can register for it at any point during the school year.
You will receive information about device distribution within the next couple of weeks from your child(ren)'s school(s). Again, please be sure to accept or decline insurance coverage before school begins on Aug. 25.
