The District follows a comprehensive plan for securing data that includes policies, administrative procedures, internal procedures, and practices. In fact, Raytown Quality Schools was one of the first districts in the nation to receive the CoSN (the Consortium for School Networking) Trusted Learning Environment (TLE) Seal, recognized for the district’s commitment to ensure the privacy and security of student data.
District instructional leaders infuse technology into the curriculum. Our classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards, projectors, and document cameras. Specifically, classroom technology distribution consists of:
- PK – 1 students have access to devices in their classrooms
- 2 – 5 students have access to 1:1 devices in their classrooms
- 6 – 12 students are assigned a 1:1 device to take home
