Student Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
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.
BYOD Parent/Guardian Information Sessions
In Fall 2015, WCSD in conjunction with your school will hold a number of information sessions for parents, guardians, and interested community members. The slides from these presentations are posted below.
