Why Chromebooks?

Roncalli has utilized Google Apps for Education (GAFE) for the past three years for Google email and Google Drive. During that time, we placed Windows laptops, Chromebooks, and iPads into the classrooms to evaluate as a "1to1" device. After careful consideration, based on feedback from teachers and usefulness in the classroom, Chromebooks were selected.

Chromebooks natively work with GAFE and provide the powerful Google Chrome browser for internet access. Over the past few years, many improvements have continuously been made to Chromebooks including the ability to store non-Google created files and the ability to work offline. Finally, GAFE is a centrally managed solution allowing our engineers to make changes without touching each device.

All students will receive a Chromebook to utilize at school, on the go, and at home. We will not support students bringing their own devices into the classroom.
