Technology and Connectivity

East Rochester Union Free School District has provided a Chromebook for every student in grades K-12. At this time, students are not permitted to bring their personal laptops/tablets to school. Students are able to access the internet through the guest wifi network while on campus. 

Families who do not have accessibility to the internet for remote learning will reach out to their building principals and will be addressed on a case by case basis. 

Devices are used to access Google Classroom, where assignments are administered and monitored by teachers. Google Classroom is used by teachers throughout the district for remote learning and blended/hybrid models. Google Meet and Zoom are available for teachers and students to use.

Accommodations have been made for students with special needs. Supportive resources are available, to the best of the district’s ability, whether the student is learning in-person or remotely. 

In the classroom, teachers have access to Smartboards, Dell desktop computers, speakers and projectors. Teachers have also been provided with Chromebook devices to assist them with the delivery of instruction. Chromebooks help teachers prepare for and participate in remote learning or a hybrid learning model. New teachers were provided a Chromebook as necessary. 

Appropriate professional development for teachers has been made and will continue to be made available. 

Kajeet HotSpots were acquired by the district and have been distributed to families in need as approved by administration.

Various document cameras, web cameras, microphones, tablets and other peripherals have been provided to teachers to support their classroom instructional activities.
