IT Update: Insurance for Laptops Available (open until Nov. 18th)

From RCHS IT Team: Insurance for Laptops is Available (for 10th to 12th grade laptop users) – 9th graders have coverage.

If you would like to purchase additional insurance for your student’s laptop, the IT team has advised the registration window for laptop insurance is open – up until November 18th.
The coverage will end at the end of the school year.  This insurance policy is only for the laptops of 10-12th graders. The 9th grade laptops already have an insurance policy embedded with the equipment. This would be an ADDITIONAL coverage for 9th grade students  — 10-12th grade students would need to purchase this insurance coverage if desired as they do not have an inherent policy connected to their laptop.

Please sign up if you deem it appropriate to obtain laptop insurance using this link below

Be sure to have your student’s id number ready for entry on the form.

DEMAND ARTS EDUCATION FOR ALL STUDENTS

SACRAMENTO – Every student has the right to a dynamic, creative education, and California Education Code requires it. Yet 88 percent of California schools are failing to meet this standard. This. Must. Change. That’s why California State PTA joined forces with Create CA to launch one of the most impactful public will campaigns for the arts in recent history to demand arts education for all students.  See the campaign.

Simply put – creativity is not an option! The goal of the campaign is to spark a movement with the public, parents, educators, artists and policy makers to demand a comprehensive, sequential arts curriculum for all children in grades K-12.

“At California State PTA, we know the arts are essential to a quality education, and we are extremely proud to be part of this important arts equity movement,” said California State PTA President Dianna MacDonald.

California State PTA is a founding partner of Create CA alongside the California Arts Council, the California Alliance for Arts Education, California State University San Marcos, the California County Superintendents Educational Services Association, LA County Arts Commission, the Alameda County Office of Education’s Alliance for Arts Learning Leadership and many others. The campaign is spearheaded by Create CA with creative concepts led by Josi Sergant with TaskForce, a Los Angeles based creative agency that collaborates with the most influential non-profits, brands and people taking on the most pressing challenges facing our state, our nation and our world.

The campaign brings awareness to demand a quality education for every student in California, and is currently building a base of engaging, passionate people – on the local level – across the state. Join California’s movement for arts education. Sign up at  www.createca.org.
