*Devices highlighted represent those most recently purchased by the District for on site student use.

*iPad/Android/Windows RT/Google Chromebook Note

Students may bring iPads, Android, or Windows RT tablets for use in schools.  However, it should be noted that not all district applications will run on those devices and students may face difficulties in completing some assignments.

Students must agree to install school related applications on their devices.  Additionally, devices must use the district network while on the school campus. Use of a personal data plan to access internet at school may result in loss of BYOD privilege.
