Portsmouth Public Schools is excited to participate in the Virginia Department of Education’s E-Learning Backpack Initiative.  Through this initiative and additional support from PPS, all students in grades 9 through 12 will receive a technology device to help support a 21st century classroom experience. 

Students will use these devices to communicate, collaborate, and create meaningful learning experiences that support the curriculum.  Providing students, teachers, and staff with platforms such a Google Apps for Education and Office 365 will facilitate learning beyond the walls of a classroom.  These devices and applications will also serve as a catalysts to equip students with college and career readiness skills to be successful in the academic and workplace setting.
