    One of the reasons for changing websites was to support mobile devices. Our new website design will collapse for smaller screens. There have been some hitches and these were corrected by Schoolwires technical support. If you are having display problems follow these steps:

    1. Check the support list above to verify that Blackboardwill support your device.
    2. In an email message to webmaster@rentonschools.us note the following:
