BYOD Program option for Grades 6-12
Students currently with the program: BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) do not need to do anything unless they’ve changed the device we have on record. If there is a change in their device, please have them bring it to the technology department when they return to school so we can update our records and can put the BYOD wireless on their machine.
- If your child will be new to the BYOD program this fall, please email Cathy to let her know so we can update our inventory firstname.lastname@example.org
