Wheeler has upgraded its wireless infrastructure to support the BYOD program and increased use of technology tools throughout the school. Students will log in to the Wheeler wifi network to access all of their cloud-based programs and tools.
Students are expected to keep their computers fully charged for optimal use during the school day.
Increased use of digital documents by students and teachers and the use of document sharing and digitally posted work should decrease the need for printing. That said, printer stations will continue to be available to students in the Upper School Computer Lab, the Prescott Library and in selected offices.
It is strongly recommended that families purchase extended warranties and/or service contracts for devices. Repair and maintenance of devices is the responsibility of the family. However, we recognize that emergencies do occur, hence a limited number of laptops will be available to students as needed. A group of student technology fellows will be appointed to support other students with technical issues.
We recommend that students use Google Chrome as their primary internet browser.
