Explanation and Terms of Agreement Regarding BYOD at Apex Middle School

The purpose of this document is to inform parents, guardians and students of the rules governing the use of personally owned computing/network devices while on or near school property, in school vehicles and at school sponsored activities, as well as the district’s technology resources via remote access. As new technologies continue to change the world in which we live, they also provide many new and positive educational benefits for classroom instruction. To encourage these benefits, Apex Middle School is allowing you to bring your own device (BYOD).

AMS Vision
Apex Middle School believes BYOD should be used to support learning, enhance instruction, and provide the best possible outcome for student achievement.

AMS Overview
Apex Middle School defines “devices” as privately owned wireless and portable electronic devices that can be used for wireless Internet access, word processing, image/video capturing, sound recording, and information transmitting.

This is an optional program students unable to bring own devices to school will be provided access to technology available at Apex Middle School.

Security and Damages
Apex Middle School principals, teachers and/or staff are not liable for any device that is stolen or damaged. Responsibility to keep the device secure rests with the individual owner. We recommend using skins (decals) and protective cases for an easy identification, differentiation, and protection of personal devices.

Participation in the BYOD program requires parents and students to read and check off each item on the responsibility and device contract, below, and electronically submit this form.
