One to One Program

To exceptionally prepare our students for success, the Plum Borough School District is extremely excited to announce the continuation and extension of our One-to-One initiative for all students in grades 6 through 12. 

As we have done in the past, students in grades 6 through 8 will receive their District-issued iPad during the school day.

For students in grades 9 through 12, we are respectfully requesting that an adult member of the family or household, pick up their student device(s) at the Plum Borough High School Library. Because this is a new initiative at the high school level, we believed it would be prudent to hand the devices directly to the families so information related to device insurance could be properly explained and acknowledged.

Before the school issued device can be taken home, families in all grades must complete and return the agreement form entitled, “Family Device Agreement Signature Page.”  All families must either elect to enroll their student’s device and accept the recommended insurance, or they must elect to decline insurance on the device. Please know, those families choosing to decline the insurance option will be responsible for the cost of any repairs and/or replacement of the device if deemed necessary.  For more information on the Technology Protection Plan please visit here.

*Note - When enrolling you will need your student's ID number.  This can be found by logging into Sapphire Community Web Portal - here.

Additionally, the Plum Borough School District will be hosting a One-to-One information night for all grade levels at Plum Senior High School on October 17th and 24th at 7PM. The hour-long presentation is designed to give students and families a brief overview of the Plum Borough School District One-to-One program, and will also highlight and demonstrate the robust safety features that have been installed on all devices to help facilitate a cyber environment that is conducive for an optimal learning environment.
