Technology for Students
Access to technology is vitally important for success in the digital age. Keyboarding, Internet safety/ethical use, researching, using productivity tools (Microsoft Office), and collaborating online are essential skills in the 21st century. Each year, more and more teachers assign work that is very challenging to complete without access to technology,. This is especially true when students don’t have access to a working, Internet-connected computing device.
The EUHSD provides the following technology to students:
- A laptop, Chromebook, or iPad for EVERY student for use in their English, social science and science class.
- A graphing calculator checked out to EVERY student in Math 1, 2 and 3 (and ALL students enrolled in math by fall 2018)
- An Office365 account, which includes a school email account and FREE access to Microsoft Office 2016 online and desktop versions
- Free access to Wi-Fi while at school (with parent permission) on student-owned devices
- Independent study/credit recovery/credit acceleration via online courses through Learning Centers
Here are some technology resources for families:
