PCS Connects

  •  PCS Connects

    PCS Connects is Pinellas County School’s one-to-one student device initiative. All students in grades three through ten will be assigned a Dell laptop to use during the school day and at home. Students in grades K-2 and 11-12 will have access to technology during the school day.  Digital resources will be embedded in daily face-to-face instruction to facilitate research, creation, critical thinking, and collaboration. The devices will also be available to extend learning after school hours for enrichment and reinforcement of the curriculum. 

    District Content Specialists create exciting enrichment opportunities for students to access outside the school day. Information can be found on our Level Up Page

    Students will be expected to bring their laptops to class each day fully charged and ready for learning. In addition, students are expected to take good care of their assigned device and report any problems to their teacher immediately.
