BYOD is simply a program where students can bring their own personal devices on campus and connect them to the new school district wireless network that allows filtered internet access.
Laptop Smart Phone Tablet E-reader Any internet capable device.
If students have a signed Cobb County BYOD Student/Parent agreement on file in the front office and have received their BYOD agenda sticker, then yes, they may bring a device at their own risk and choice.
Students bring personal electronic devices to school at their own risk, just like any other personal items. The school district will NOT be held responsible if any personal electronic (or other personal item) is lost, stolen, damaged, or misplaced.
Will a student be at a disadvantage if they dont have a device? NO! District curriculum remains the same. The district will continue to purchase supplementary textbooks, support materials, computers and software to support student learning. When electronic devices are used to enhance learning in the classroom, students without a personal device will be provided access to an appropriate district-owned device as needed individually, in pairs or as part of a group.
What network access will users have on their devices? Students will have access to district- filtered Internet access only by logging into the CCSD BYOD network. All chat and IMing capabilities have been disabled. Students cannot access Facebook or other social network sites. Students should not use a cellular network (3G, 4G,etc.) while at school.
Check to see if your teachers are using BYOD. Get a user agreement from your teacher if they are a BYOD class. Have a conversation as a family to decide if BYOD is the right for you. Return your user agreement to your teacher. Remember that the policy for electronic devices is in place at all times, unless your teacher directs you to take out your device for a learning activity.
