Pittsburgh Public School Extends Tech Exchange Program

PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) School supplies in the time of the Coronavirus pandemic are different than normal.

23,000 students in Pittsburgh Public Schools are starting the first 9 weeks of school on-line, which requires new technology.

The Pittsburgh Public School District wants to make sure it's in the hands of all of its students and families.

The district will be extending their computer device exchange and need-based distribution schedule to include evening hours and a Saturday for added flexibility. 

Pittsburgh Public Schools says previously-issued devices will not work due to system upgrades, and must be exchanged for a device configured for this school year.

Device distribution will take place between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM at the following locations:

Pittsburgh Carrick High School, 125 Parkfield Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15210

Pittsburgh Classical Academy, 1463 Chartiers Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15220

Pittsburgh Oliver Citywide Academy, 2323 Brighton Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15212

Pittsburgh Westinghouse Academy, 1101 N. Murtland Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15208
