We would like to begin the bring your own device (BYOD) initiative for all students in Grades 5-8. Obviously, part of the impetus for moving this initiative forward so quickly involves the uncertainty of next fall and the possible extension or incorporation of remote learning. Students’ ability to have access to a dedicated device, both in and out of school, will be essential to their education regardless of the structure of school next year. In our technological society, our students must master effective and appropriate use of devices that support and enhance their learning, as they prepare for future endeavors that will be highly reliant on these skills.
We understand that not all families will be in a position to purchase a device for their child, and we will be there to loan devices as needed.
Please review the Frequently Asked Questions on our Technology page, as it addresses many of the issues and inquiries we received at BHS when the same initiative began there.
