• G Suite for Education - Chromebooks

    As a member of the Rockdale 84 community, every student has been loaned a Chromebook device, a charger, and a Messenger Bag.

    Rockdale District 84 will be integrating technology throughout the school in order to become 21st century learners in a globalized society. Our District’s 1:1 Wireless Device Program engages students’ learning and differentiates instruction by providing opportunities that will enhance collaboration, critical thinking, creativity and social skills. These tools are essential for students to compete in tomorrow’s workforce.
