In the fall of 2012, a committee comprised of faculty, administrators and a school board liaison reviewed the viability of a 1:1 computing program. After several months of internal discussion and public board presentations, a recommendation to proceed with a 1:1 laptop program at Penn Manor High School was unanimously approved at the April 1, 2013 school board meeting.
During the 2013-2014 school year all full-time high school students received a personal laptop for use throughout the school day and at home. The laptop learning program expanded to all grade 7 and 8 students in August 2015.
