District Technology Overview

At Quaker Valley, laptop and desktop computers, iPads, and a variety of technology, such as electronic whiteboards and projectors, are used as tools to enhance and facilitate learning and assessment. Computer instruction is provided to all students, and computer labs are available to students and staff in each building. Classrooms are equipped with screens and projectors. A high-speed wireless network and networked laser printers exist in all buildings across the district.

Students in grades 3-12 are issued an Apple iPad to use at school and at home. Students in grades K-2 have access to computer carts equipped with Apple Macbook Air laptops to support lessons or curricular units. In addition, learning support teachers utilize a variety of iPad apps with their students.

The Quaker Valley School Board in 2019 approved a technology plan to continue its one-to-one initiative for students in grades 6-12 using Apple iPad tablets, and in 2020 approved iPads for grades 3-5 as well.  In addition, the elementary and middle school computer labs are equipped with MacBook Air laptops, and the two high school labs are equipped with Dell PC desktop computers.
