It is our intention that students use their Chromebook to access textbooks, record lecture notes, conduct online research, and send assignments electronically to their teachers. The Chromebook will also allow students to create documents, spreadsheets, produce PowerPoint presentations, edit pictures, and access to a wide variety of Google education Apps.
Our research has found the Chromebook to be the most efficient and affordable option for Cardinal Ritter College Prep. All students are required to purchase a Chromebook through the school. The cost of the Chromebook will be set-up as a $300.00 technology fee. The fee covers the cost of the Chromebook, the Chromebook management fee, and set-up. Once purchased, the Chromebook belongs to the student. Students and families are responsible for the cost to replace lost, damage and/or stolen Chromebooks.
