Bring Your Own Device

Department Page: 

We are excited to continue our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program which places technology directly into our students’ hands. In today’s age, technology plays an important role in helping to ensure the future success of our students. The BYOD program has become a common option utilized in educational environments across the nation.  

Devices are required for English, Social Studies, and Science and may also be used in other subject areas.
