Bring Your Own Robust Device to MCHS
Bring Your Own Robust Device (BYORD) - GSACRD
For the upcoming school year, Greater St. Albert Catholic Schools wishes to support students in providing an opportunity to purchase laptops in support of learning in the digital age. The purchase plan would allow families to participate in a bulk order, accessing best pricing and a payment plan to spread the cost over 8 to 10 monthly installments. To purchase either a MacBook Air ($1102.71) or an Acer Chromebook ($334.22) for your child sign into your School Cash Online account. You can also register for an account on the site.
As a school community, we strive to integrate technology into our student’s everyday studies. With the technology advancing at such a rapid pace, we see firsthand how it can positively impact the learning for all. The use of technology has provided teachers the opportunity to personalize and accommodate all learning styles, as well as providing students with differentiated learning opportunities, flexible pathways to success, collaboration opportunities and any time, any paced learning.
Should you wish to purchase a Robust Device for your child this September 2015, we have provided an information sheet on various Robust Devices below. While no device is perfect, following the guidelines provided will aide you in making a decision best suited to your child’s need, and make the most of students use of Google Apps for Education, as well as personalize their learning.
All orders must be received by August 14, 2015 to ensure delivery for the start of the school year.
Orders received between August 14, 2015 and September 4, 2015 should expect delivery in late September.
Inquiries on the Technology Plan can be sent to email@example.com, Assistant Superintendent, Greater St. Albert Catholic Schools.

Excellent Report Card for MCHS! (click on image)
Twice a year Alberta Education releases a 'report card' on each school in the province, using results from student, parent and teacher surveys, along with hard data from students on Provincial Achievement Tests, Diploma Exams and other measures related to Grade 12 students. This is the Accountability Pillar for each school and each school district in the province.
The results are the strongest that they have been for MCHS in the 10 years that Alberta Education has been reporting on schools in this manner. The stellar report for MCHS is due to the work that students, parents and faculty have been part of for the past year and beyond. Our students and communities are the beneficiaries of this and this report again highlights the fact that MCHS is one of the top high schools in Alberta.
Access to the full report (196 pages) is available on our school website and on the Alberta Education website.
Thank you for your continued support of your children and the students of MCHS.
