The 2020 Vision developed for Pequot Lakes Schools with input from our business community, parents, staff, and many others calls for us to provide a rigorous, relevant, and personalized learning experience for each student. Creating learning experiences that are personalized and relevant to careers not yet invented requires students to access and interact with online learning environments and to develop digital citizenship competencies. After a year-long study of options for creating and sustaining 1-to-1 technology access for students, Pequot Lakes Schools is offering an opportunity for students and families to purchase educational technology at a reduced cost. While optional, Pequot Lakes Schools recommends parents consider this opportunity for their child.
Students in grades 6, 9, and 12 will be provided with a discount code and access to a special BestBuy Pequot Lakes Schools webstore each fall to purchase a Pequot Lakes Schools approved device. This code discounts the price of the device by $150.
