Technology Requirements 2020-2021

As per our obligation to fulfil the requirements of the next phase strategy and to implement what we have started years ago to guarantee a successful digital transformation for our students, we emphasize on the importance of providing computer laptops for students in order to meet the distance learning expectations. Therefore, we kindly urge you to consider the following: All students must own laptops with good quality features that include windows 10 as the operating system with Microsoft 365. DAS will provide all students with Microsoft Office 365 accounts that will enable them to download the required software in their personal computers. We would like to inform you that distance learning requires laptops and that CANNOT be replaced with tablets and ipads.

KG to 2nd Graders:

Students may use tablets and ipads during the next phase, knowing that you will be informed if there is a need to have a laptop, as we keep on with the variables of learning.

3rd to 12th Graders must have laptops with the following key features:

  • Intel (i3) or AMD class processor.
  • 4GB RAM or higher.
  • Built-in Mic and Camera.
  • Windows 10 (preferred), you may use your MacBook as long as you install office 365.
