Oregon Connections Academy (ORCA) families with students enrolled in grades K–8 may request one Laptop computer for the household.
ORCA families with students enrolled in grades 9–12 are responsible for providing their own computer. However, computers will be available for households that request and are approved for a technology hardship exception based on income eligibility.
