Giving students the opportunity to learn through technology has always been an important focus of the Allegheny Valley School District.  In the age of a global pandemic and social distancing, using technology and connecting to the Internet has become an essential cornerstone of learning across the globe.  Our dependence on technology for virtual learning on such a massive scale is something that is new for all of us.   Technology is a wonderful way to help connect us at this moment, but it can also be increasingly a source of frustration when we have to troubleshoot and problem solve issues when it is not working.   It can feel increasingly overwhelming when you not even sure where to start when something goes wrong.  When this happens, try to keep calm and stay patient.  Know that you can email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
