Salem Public Schools is committed to providing students with independent and engaging learning experiences from preschool through graduation. One of the ways we achieve this is through the use of technology in instruction. All SPS students are provided with an Internet connected device which they can utilize to access various forms of digital curriculum and resources provided by the district as well as assignments posted to our Learning Management Systems by their teachers. Below is an outline of Salem Public Schools one-to-one device and technology guidelines.
