The Rockcastle County Schools Technology Department is responsible for maintaining and supporting the technology infrastructure for the entire school district.
Our goal is to help the district stay on the cutting edge of technology and incorporate computer literacy for our staff and students. We encourage and allow the integration of technology into all aspects of our teaching and learning department. We make every effort to provide access to the appropriate technologies and give our students and staff the opportunity to improve and advance all educational opportunities through technology.
If you are in the market for a personal computer for home use, you have the opportunity to purchase enterprise-level computers at the KETS negotiated pricing. Computers include desktop, laptop and tablet models from Dell, HP, Lenovo and Apple (however Apple is not offering their IDU prices to the students for home purchases). Vendor-specific order instructions are included at the top of the IDU order forms located on the KDE website at this link. Dell Computers Can be bought at http://www.dell.com/epp/kets Some Prices are as much as 50% below retail pricing for equivalent models.
