Technology

Our decisions for how to integrate technology are guided by what devices, tools, and resources best support Calvert's program and philosophy. At this point in time especially, we also want to ensure continuity in our program whether here on campus or remote.

The following is an overview of the core technology you and your children may expect in the fall. As always, teachers will provide more specific information as to how technology will be used in their classes throughout the year. 

Please note that all school-issued devices are managed by Calvert and set-up specifically to meet the academic technology needs of students in each grade. This includes a standard set of apps, settings, and content filter.

Please see the Technology Page on the Resource Board in MyCalvert for all information regarding technology at Calvert, including the updated Responsible Use Policy.
