BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)
The Board of Education took steps to improve the technology infrastructure at district schools to allow students to use their own technology devices to enhance their learning. This program is simply known as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).
The district believes 21st Century instruction is necessary for 21st century learning. Providing students with an environment that fosters and encourages this belief is part of the organization’s core values. All members of the learning community hold the responsibility to value technology and achieve technological proficiency to prepare students for future jobs.
Students can bring the following devices for instructional use:
- Smart Phones
Schools must challenge students with rigorous, personalized academic experiences, foster innovation and creativity and embrace emerging technologies. In a 21st century learning environment, students actively engage in a cohesively integrated curriculum, access information and apply it in solving authentic problems.
Our students are living in a world where they have immediate access to information anytime and anywhere. Many students have personally owned devices in their pockets that enable them to learn in their own style and at their own pace. With digital learning, every student can access high quality and rigorous instruction in every subject, thereby, maximizing their opportunity for success in school and beyond.
- Bringing a personal device is an option—not a requirement
- Personally owned electronic devices will be used for educational purposes only. Students must use devices as directed by their teacher.
- The use of a personal device is not to be a distraction in any way to teachers or students. Devices must not disrupt class in any way.
- Students are responsible for following the Acceptable Use Policy from the district.
- Personal devices shall be charged prior to bringing it to school. Access to charging stations should not be expected.
- Students are responsible for safeguarding devices brought to school.
Should you have any questions, please contact your child's principal.
