Technology in RTSD for 2019-20
Coming in 2019-20: Comprehensive Support and Software for Versatile Devices Students Can Keep
RTSD is thankful to the staff members, students and community members who worked together over the last two and a half years to study technology integration within and beyond Radnor.
One result of this work will begin the 2019-2020 school year, when each Radnor High School student in grades 9-11 will be provided a Microsoft Surface Go full-service touchscreen tablet/laptop. An annual fee of $139 per student will be collected to cover the use of the device, one Surface Go stylus, a case and keyboard. Software and support will also be included for enrolled students, including Office 365, academic software required for all enrolled courses, filtering and security software, technology support, and insurance. Repairs, with some limitations and deductibles, are also included. Students who pay four or more annual technology payments will be gifted their Surface Go, keyboard and case upon graduation or upon leaving Radnor High School.
PLEASE NOTE: Families who may be experiencing financial difficulties or trouble accessing the internet at home are asked to contact their school principal or counselor for assistance.
