RCPS 1 to 1 initiative

Computer Accessories For Sale

RCPS is excited for the 16-17 school year and a new 1 to 1 computer initiative at Rappahannock High School. Every student in grades 8 through 12 can receive a Dell laptop, once the proper paperwork is completed and a $25.00 technology fee is paid.

There will be two parent information nights: Wednesday, August 24 and another meeting on Thursday, August 25 at 7 pm in the RHS auditorium. General information about the computer and school policies will be discussed and there will be a time for questions.

Computers will be available for student pick up on Wednesday, August 30, during Open House. For more information about the 1 to 1 program and forms that must be completed to pick up a student’s computer, you can go to the RCPS webpage: http://www.richmond-county.k12.va.us/…/te…/r_h_s_1_1_program RCPS is also happy to provide three commonly needed accessories at cost for the computers: laptop cases (conveniently fit into students’ current backpacks), jump drives and ear buds. These will be available on Open House night.

The RCE/RCM outdoor classroom and garden project is in full swing, and just received a big boost in funding after being awarded a Lowe's Toolbox for Education grant in the amount of $5,000 earlier today!
