Each secondary school has at least one iConnect liaison. This person may be an Assistant Principal or Counselor working directly with participating students and coordinates with the District Technology Department.  At the Elementary Schools, the contact person is the Principal.  School Site and District personnel will check in with families/students periodically and send surveys to families.

Student(s)/family may borrow a computing device with appropriate school software and warranty while enrolled in PAUSD.  The families agree to maintain a high-speed home Internet connection. The service can be available currently for about $10/month with Comcast.
