The vision of the Richmond County School System is “to provide an equitable education for all students to prepare them for life beyond the classroom.” Computer literacy is an important part of today's world - all students need the opportunity to learn to use programs commonly used in the workforce and colleges. The PowerUp initiative uses our education sales tax funds to provide a device for every student. These devices will help assignments to be personalized, engaging, and can increase creativity. This initiative can also provide access to knowledge outside of the classroom. The PowerUp Handbook is designed to help our students understand how to care for the device, use it properly, find help if needed, and to become good digital citizens.
PowerUp is a school based initiative. Parent orientation and device distribution information will be shared from the school. Stay tuned and get ready to PowerUp!
