Technology Resources

Useful Links
Below are listed resources to help with different technologies incorporated in the Plum Borough School District.
 
 
IT Help Desk
You can submit a question or service request to the technology team by sending an email to helpdesk@pbsd.net. This will create a ticket on which we can keep orderly notes regarding the history of your problem. We will reply within 24 hours.
 
If you are a student or employee of the district, you can use your PBSD username and password to access the Help Desk Portal, which is an alternative way to create tickets which will also allow you to check their status.
 
We are also available by phone at ext. 6340, or 412-798-6340 from outside the district. 
 

The above link will show you how to log in to Google Apps for Education, where you'll be able to access your students' Gmail and Google Classroom. Classwork, homework, and other information about your students' courses will be available on Google Classroom.
 
Note: Students in grades K - 5 will use the password PBsd@####, where the four numbers equal their respective four digit lunch codes. Because of our 1:1 device initiative in grades 6 - 12, we will wait until the 2019 - 2020 school year to move the rest of our grades to this password format. If you have a student in grades 6 - 12 and you would like to know her/her password, please send an email to helpdesk@pbsd.net with your child's student ID number and we will provide that information. If your student is in grades K - 4 and you do not know their lunch code, please reach out to his/her teacher or email helpdesk@pbsd.net.
 
Clever is a platform that allows you to use a single login account to access almost all of our online applications and systems. 
This site lets you use one login to access most of your applications.  Click here for instructions on how to log in.
