PCS Connects is Pinellas County School’s one-to-one student device initiative.During the 2021-2022 school year, scholars in grades 9 and 10 will be issued a Dell laptop to be used in classes. Scholars in grades 11 and 12 will have access to technology throughout the day.
All 9th and 10th grade devices will be distributed through English classes. Parents/Scholars must fill out the Parent Responsibilty Form that was distribtued through their English class and then return the completed form to their English teacher. English teachers will then bring their classrooms to the Research Center for device checkout. Each scholar will be responsible for the device assigned to them. Families will be responsible for any damage done to the device while it is in the scholar's care.
If a scholar is absent on the day their English Class checks out computers, then they will need to bring their form to Mrs. Wolfe in the Research Center before school (7 AM) or during lunch.
Please visit the Pinellas County Schools PCS Connects site for more information about proper handling and care of these devices.
