Students, parents can now get tech support from Pittsburgh Public Schools

PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Public Schools students and parents will be able to get technology support for their district-issued laptops starting Wednesday.

A number of schools will offer the in-person services to help students and parents navigate the technology.

“Even as educators, we are still learning ourselves and vow to continually make sure cyber security is a priority. Parent and staff are encouraged to take action as well. If you see something, say something. We are here to make E-Learning accessible and digitally responsible for all families,” a statement from the school district said.
