The purpose of the RCS Technology Initiative is to provide up-to-date technological capabilities to equip RCS students, beginning in the elementary grades, to move seamlessly into a technology environment that increasingly requires superb technical proficiency.
All upper school teachers have spent many hours in staff development learning how the different application tools such as Google Classroom and Google Suite could help them work with students and staff. They continue to attend staff development sessions and request additional help as they become more familiar with each aspect of the applications.
Our infrastructure is composed of an Aruba Wireless system that provides a wireless cloud across the RCS campus. Students are required to authenticate to the RCS network where we have web filtering and monitoring.
As we move into the brave new world of online instruction, RCS has embraced the free tools provided by Google. All 6th-12th grade students have been provided accounts that give them an email address, a Google calendar account and a Google G-Suite documents account. Students are trained to use these tools to research, collaborate and communicate with other students and teachers as they work on projects and assignments.
Students may access their Google applications with the same username and password assigned by the Technology Department.
Students must always assume that when working online, anything they post or write is not private. RCS administrators have the ability to view posts made to Google applications. We make every attempt to respect individual privacy and do not spend time looking unless there is something that has been called into question. We have read too many stories of people who posted something to web sites and social media that later prevented them from gaining admission to a college or a job because of the nature of what they posted. We will continually teach and remind students that anything put online could be accessible by others.
Students are also responsible for abiding by the RCS Acceptable Use Policy. This document is located in the RCS Student / Parent Handbook.
