BYOD (Bring Your Qwn Device)

BYOD is a Privilege, not a Right

The use of technology to access educational material is not a necessity or a right but a privilege. A student does not have a right to use his or her laptop, cell phone or other electronic device while at school. When abused, privileges will be taken away. When respected, they will benefit from the learning environment as a whole. Students and parents/guardians participating in BYOD must adhere to the Student Code of Conduct, as well as all Board policies, particularly Technology Resources (Policy CQ).


The technology is allowed for educational purposes and only to enhance the classroom experience.

Teachers will decide when it may be used and for what purpose(s). The technology may only be used to access files on computer or Internet sites which are relevant to the classroom curriculum.

When authorized for use by the classroom teacher, devices will remain visible.

Students take full responsibility for their personal electronic/digital devices. The school/district is not responsible for the security of the electronic devices.
