School Advisory Council (SAC)

We encourage all families to participate in our School Advisory Council (SAC), which is a peer-elected, collaborative team composed of family members, teachers, students, community members, the principal, and other school staff.

Our SAC champions the work for improved student achievement, effective teaching in the classroom, family and community engagement in the educational process, and communication and support between home and school. SAC focuses on data-driven, strategic conversations that center on these focus areas.

District Supports and Services

Technology Support Centers

The School District of Philadelphia has three District Technology Support Centers open 5 days per week (Monday – Friday) from 9:00 am - 2:00 pm for families to obtain new Chromebooks or get help with their current Chromebook.


Beginning September 21, 2020, the 3 locations for Chromebook pick up and repairs will be South Philadelphia High School, MLK High School, and Fitzpatrick Annex:


  1. South Philadelphia High School: 2101 South Broad Street

  2. Martin Luther King High School: 6100 Stenton Avenue; Philadelphia, PA 19138

  3. Fitzpatrick Annex Building: 4101 Chalfont Drive, Philadelphia PA 19154


Please note that starting September 14, 2020, the district will open South Philadelphia High School as a Parent & Family Tech Support Center for Chromebook pick up and repairs. To allow for a smooth transition as the South Philly High School location ramps up, the Support Center at 440 N. Broad Street will remain open for the week of September 14th. September 18th will then be the last day for Chromebook repair and distribution at the 440 location.


Tech Support Hotline

The District offers a dedicated telephone support line and email exclusively for parents and students to help you get your District-issued devices up and running, and to address more basic technical issues with broken or malfunctioning computers.


Internet Support

If you want or need support related to internet access, call “211” on your phone and select Option 1. Also, information about no-cost or low-cost internet access is available here:


Returns

Wondering if you have to return your Chromebook, and how? The answers vary, depending if you are a graduating senior, changing schools, and other factors. Visit the District's Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) page for more information.
