BYOD

Student Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Student with Laptop

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) increases the amount of technology available in the classroom, giving the students more hands-on access to technology devices for learning.

  • Intermediate, middle school and high school students are allowed to bring their own mobile technology devices to school.

  • Student participation in BYOD is optional.  

Campus BYOD Start Dates

Campuses may not start BYOD on the first day of school.  Your child's campus or teacher will indicate when it is appropriate to begin bring student-owned devices to class.
