Hardware and Connectivity

Computer

Oregon Connections Academy (ORCA) families with students enrolled in grades K–8 may request one 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. Please refer to your school handbook for details. The handbook is available after the initial enrollment registration.

Please make sure to check our minimum system requirements.

Internet Service

ORCA households are responsible for providing their own Internet service.

If your household income is at or below Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines, you may request a subsidy towards the cost of your household Internet service. If your family does not meet the Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines, you may request to receive a subsidy but must provide a copy of your most recent internet bill for each subsidy. Please refer to your school handbook for the payment schedule details. 

Households are responsible for obtaining an Internet service provider.

Printer

All ORCA households are responsible for providing their own printer.
