PowerUp for Parents
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. Students will participate in the PowerUp course to ensure they understand how to care for the device, use it properly, find help if needed, and to become good digital citizens.
The PowerUp Course for Parents is designed to provide information about our technology initiative and teach you how to navigate in our online classroom platform that we call Canvas. The PowerUp course is designed just like an online course that your child would take, minus graded assignments.
