Harrisburg School District to launch phase 3 of planned academic enrichment, device distribution


HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Harrisburg School District Acting Superintendent, Mr. Chris Celmer, announced Wednesday, phase three of the District’s planned academic enrichment programming and device distribution to support at-home learning for high school students and families during the COVID-19 crisis.

In addition to providing districtwide academic enrichment tips, tools, and educational resources, and free, over-the-air broadcast programming in partnership with WITF and WITFK PBS KIDS for all Pre-K through 12th-grade students, the District’s phase three rollout includes a three-day drive-up/walk-up device distribution plan for students in grades nine to 12 at Harrisburg High School John Harris Campus and SciTech Campus.

To receive a computer device, students are required to have their school ID or student ID number at the time of distribution. Devices must be properly used, maintained, and returned in the condition they were issued.
