Student One to One Program

Philipsburg-Osceola Area School District iTech Department 200 Short Street Philipsburg, PA 16866 814-342-7322

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Philipsburg-Osceola Area School District is excited to begin a new one to one (1:1) laptop program for students enrolled in 6ththrough 11thgrade for the 2018-19 school year. Every student in 6ththrough 141th grade will be assigned a Windows 10 Laptop and an embroidered work in laptop carrying case. During the summer, parents/guardians and students will be receiving important paperwork that will need signed and returned during the first week of school before receiving the laptop.

The goal of the 1:1 program at POASD is to create a learning environment that is consistent with advances in technology and facilitates resource sharing, critical thinking, responsibility, innovation, research, creativity, communication, collaboration, increased productivity and mobile learning.

Our district mission for the one to one (1:1) technology initiative is just the next step to ensure our students have the access to technology and learning that keeps them “Educating today …… responsible citizens tomorrow.”

If you have additional questions, please contact the iTech support center at 814-342-7322.
