COLLABORATION STATIONS

Have a project where students need to collaborate and/or share their work? Come down to the LC and use the new collaboration stations! These stations act as a larger screen that students can use their device to mirror off to and share their work or work collaboratively on their projects. Each one of the six collaboration stations accommodates 5-6 students.


  • Sign them out on the ROHS Checkout Document
  • Remember we are a BYOD school, so have students bring their devices in!

Stay Updated!

Get in the know!


Substitute Laptops

We have TWO laptops designated for substitute use in the event there is a teacher absence and the teacher lesson plans call for technology use. Please make sure to contact Becky Stremmell to alert her that your sub will need a laptop or they will not be given one when they sign-in and pick up their sub folder.

Book Checkout

Self-checkout is up! Students NEED to have their student IDs to check out books. They can put them on hold if they want to come back.

TECHNOLOGY

Apple TV Update:

The OS team has made adjustments to the network in order to remedy the connectivity issue. Make sure your iPad bluetooh is turned on to connect. Your Apple TV is a great resource to use for modeling, showing digital resources and examples.
