Petersburg Students Refurbish Computers, Donate to Classmates
Petersburg City Public Schools (PCPS) students are refurbishing computers and giving them to local students and families who will benefit from the devices. It’s all part of a state-wide program called the Virginia Student Training and Refurbishing Program, also known as Virginia STAR.
As a participant in the program, PCPS recently received surplus computer hardware from government agencies and private companies. Petersburg High students in the electronics track of the Career and Technical Education program repaired all of the units received – a total of twenty computers.
The refurbished computers are now being donated. So far, PCPS has identified ten students whose families would benefit from the fixed-up computers.
