Technology is a transparent but critical tool in implementing our mission of preparing students to be servants of Christ in contemporary society in instruction, communications, information management, and other operations. By teaming the power of technology with the power of skillful teachers, we will realize an optimal environment for learning. The widespread presence of technology continues to redefine the concepts of "school", "student", "teacher", as well as “teaching and learning.”
Driven by our mission to prepare our students to be servants of Christ in contemporary society, Grand Rapids Christian Schools (GRCS) is pleased to be able to provide technology devices to our students in grades five through twelve to enhance, enrich, and facilitate learning and communication. GRCS devices are provided to students as a privilege and may be used for school-related purposes, inside and outside the school facility, during the school calendar year. Participating students and their parents are asked to sign a consent form which details the responsibilities related to technology and use of the school’s devices.
Goals for Student Device Program:
- Support our mission to prepare students to be effective servants of Christ in contemporary society while using technology resources
- Implement learning resources that transform the teaching and learning process utilizing creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration
- Create a technology infused learning environment that will increase student achievement, expand technology literacy, and create a culture in which we can learn and innovate together
