About the Devices 

This year at Rowlett High School, the Ready 1:1 program will offer different devices to students depending on grade level. All 9th and 10th grade students will have the opportunity to opt-in and receive a Chromebook. All 11th and 12th grade students will have the opportunity to opt-in and receive an iPad. These devices will be managed by Garland ISD, which adds security and management functionality to each device. 
 

Technical support

Students will have access to technical support on campus and online. From our District Ready 1:1 FAQs web page: Each campus will have a Ready 1:1 Support Center with a full-time technician dedicated to the support and management of student iPads.

Rowlett HS Student iPad Service Request

Students will submit a Service Request when their device needs support.  Skyward email address and NPIN are needed.
