Students in grades 2-12 are given a district
Google Apps for Education account. We are calling this account RrApps/Student. RrApps/Student accounts also include a district student email address. This email is configured so that email may be sent and received from staff email accounts (rrcs.org) or student email accounts (rrcsstudent.org) in grades 2-8. Students in grades 9-12 may receive email from outside these domains. These student email accounts are for school, not personal use.
RrApps/Student accounts provide students with the ability
to create online documents, spreadsheets, presentations, forms and
drawings. Additionally, they can
upload previously created Word documents and convert them to Google docs. This will avoid the problem sometimes
encountered by students of having a different version of Word at home and
This online account will allow students to store Google Docs
and files and access them from school, home or anywhere they have Internet
access, such as the Rocky River Public Library. Each RrApps/Student account has unlimited file storage
available. In the
past, we have recommended that students purchase a flash drive (2 GB or larger
memory) to move files between home and school. We anticipate that this may no longer be necessary as
students can use RrApps/Student for this purpose.
Students at Kensington will learn about RrApps/Student in their computer class throughout the year. RRMS students will cover RrApps/Student in their quarter-long computer class. RRHS students will be given an overview of RrApps/Student during class meetings at the beginning of the year. RRMS and RRHS media staff are also available to provide assistance.
Note: Parents must have given permission for Internet/email use when they complete their child's online forms at the beginning of the year in order for the student to have an RrApps/Student account enabled.
