Personalizing Learning for Unlimited Success 

We are very excited to complete our roll out of the Orono PLUS program. We are committed to helping each student maximize their potential in life by personalizing instruction. Ensuring each student has access to the appropriate digital tools is a critical component of that effort.  

The Orono webstore is now closed for the 2016-17 school year.  If you are new to the district and need assistance obtaining a device for a student in grades 6 through 12, please contact the Penny Pease for assistance.
