Student-issued devices offer many benefits to the modern-day learner, including access to learning materials both in the classroom and at home and the ability to engage in real-time inquiry as questions arise. Laptops support project-based learning, allowing students to research, collaborate, and produce a final product to share with teachers, peers, and parents. Besides increasing student engagement and improving organizational skills, providing laptops for all students also ensures equitable access to digital tools for all Riverview students.
In an effort to further reduce student fees Riverview School District is moving to a self-insured repair model for the 2019-2020 school year.
Please review the Repair Cost Table for both accidental and Negligent costs.

This is an opt-in service, available to all parents / guardians listed in the Skyward system.
Skooler integrates Office 365 and other applications for maximum teacher & technology efficiency. It also enhances communication between teachers, students, and parents. We look forward to a few teachers piloting Skooler in the spring of 2018, with an official launch in the 2018-19 school year.
Class Policy is a device management software installed on both teacher and student laptops. Teachers can launch specific websites or applications during class on student devices, as well as limit applications to keep students on task or for assessment purposes.
School Data Sync synchronizes teacher and student rosters so our device management applications automatically know when classes start and end and which students are in each class.
