A Message from the Director of Technology:
Technology in the Robla School District classroom has come a long way in the 18 years I've worked for the district. When I started, if a classroom had one computer, they were doing well. During the first summer I worked here, we received 162 desktop computers. Those computers allowed us to put a computer into every classroom. Now we are deploying 2,000+ chromebooks to students for distance learning, support over 300+ desktop and laptop computers for staff and teachers, and hundreds of mobile devices including Apple iPads for staff and students.
For the 2020-2021 school year, the Technology Department is working to ensure our teahcers and students are well supported with technology and have enough devices to conduct distance learning operations. Over 2,000 chromebook devices have been purchased and/or provided through the state to provide devices to students, as well as 300 hot spots to provide internet connections for families without a current connection. If you are in need of equipment, please check with your child's school office.
With construction projects started at Robla Elementary and soon to begin at Bell Avenue, thanks to Bond Measure K
, we will continue tweeking and fine-tuning the 21st Century Classroom
design. Additional projects for the school year include:
- Student Information System move from Illuminate SIS
- District Office MDF Relocation & Install
- Chromebook Cart Device Upgrades
- Security Camera & Safety Expansion
With the ever increasing demands of technology, the Technology Department works closely with the Technology Enrichment Teachers
to ensure students receive a well rounded education in technology on a variety of platforms, from Google Chromebooks and VR Goggles, to RC racers and Apple ipads. Students also receive classes on digital citizenship, typing, and word processing, while incorporating English, math, and science standards to meet goals set within the California Common Core
We have a slogan in the Technology Department, often referred to as District Office Information Technology (Do It), when it comes to technology, we can do it! Our dedicated staff offer a wide range of abilities and talents and allow us to meet the challenges of ever-evolving technology curriculum, distance learning, security and safety concerns, and new technology.
Simply put, the Robla Technology Department is up to meet the needs of students, staff, and families well into the 21st Century and beyond.
