Teachers will be leveraging these devices as teaching tools and will be teaching classroom routines and procedures for in-person instruction as well. Plan to have your child(ren) transport the device to and from school safely in their backpack on a daily basis so that it can be used from home and school. Individual teachers will then express their expectations and preferences for devices in the classroom to families as a part of their communications (e.g. if they’re only needed certain days versus all).If you have any technology-related questions, please contact the PRSD Technology Department’s Student Support Team at (724) 443-1503, extension HELP (x4357). You can find the email addresses of teachers via this directory link and school start times via this link.
