North Branch Area Public Schools is excited to announce the expansion of the Bridging D3 Program “Laptops for All” for the 2016-17 school year. In alignment with Building on Success Strategic Focus for 2013-18, the NBAPS School Board approved Bridging D3. Bridging D3 is a “Laptop for All” initiative which provides students in grades 5-8 at the Middle School and grades 9-12 at the High School a Chromebook to be used both in and out of the classroom. We believe students of today and tomorrow need to possess the technical skills required by today’s standards while retaining other essential skills, such as problem solving, critical thinking, and becoming responsible users of technology.The Bridging D3 program, along with its mission and goals are essential in preparing our students for college and career.
