Netbooks for all Students
    Educational research indicates that businesses need young people who have developed the skills listed below. Most adults now carry their information, addresses, plans, files, presentations and means of communication with them in a briefcase or even a pocket. We cannot expect our students to compete in that world if we only allow them access to stationary technology for limited blocks of time.

    Beginning with the 2010/2011 school year, all students at Roncalli are provided with a netbook to be used for that school year. By providing them with a netbook and wireless connection at school, we will be allowing them to pursue their education in a manner that more closely resembles real life, preparing them for whatever future they decide to pursue.

    For more information on the opportunities these netbooks will provide to our students:
