Technology and Connectivity

East Rochester Union Free School District will provide a Chromebook for every student in grades 1-12. At this time, students will not be permitted to bring their personal laptops/tablets to school. 

Students will be able to access the internet through the guest wifi network while on campus.

Families who do not have accessibility to the internet for remote learning will reach out to their building principals and will be addressed on a case by case basis. 

Devices will be used to access Google Teams, where assignments will be administered and monitored by teachers. Google Teams will be used by teachers throughout the district for remote learning and blended/hybrid models. Zoom will also be made available for teachers and students to use, also.

Accommodations will be made for students with special needs. Supportive resources will be made available, to the best of the district’s ability, whether the student is learning in-person or remotely. 

In the classroom, teachers have access to Smartboards, Dell desktop computers, speakers and projectors available to them.  Teachers have also been provided with Chromebook devices to assist them with the delivery of instruction.  Chromebooks help teachers prepare for and participate in remote learning or a hybrid learning model. New teachers will be provided a Chromebook as necessary. Google Classroom will be utilized in grades K-12. Zoom may be utilized for remote learning. 

Appropriate professional development for teachers will be available.
