RepMO Ready is the technology expansion plan that the Republic School District is implementing in order to get technology in the hands of our students to enhance their educational experience. Below is a summary of the device rollout through the 2018-19 school year. In most cases, Chromebooks are being distributed.ALL secondary students across the district will have the opportunity to take home their assigned device by the 2018-19 school year. In order to do so, one parent per student must complete the required parent orientation. This can be done online through Canvas or in person. Parents of incoming 6th, 8th and 9th-12th grade students for the 2017-18 school year are now able to complete this orientation. If you've already completed the orientation last year, no action is needed. Also, only one orientation must be done per family. Details about completing it through your Canvas account can be found HERE. Or, if you'd rather complete the orientation in person, below is a list of the dates/times available.Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.In-Person Parent Orientation Dates
