Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) Student & Parent Agreement
Eagle Ridge Academy recognizes that our information-based world is becoming increasingly complex and students who are skilled in creativity, critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and information technologies are better prepared to be successful citizens in the global community. Just as new technologies are changing the world in which we live, they are providing new and positive educational benefits that help students develop these skills. ERA also recognizes that it does not have the resources to provide these technologies to every student.

In an effort to bring more technology tools into our classroom and to leverage student owned technology, Eagle Ridge Academy will allow personal technology devices to be brought on campus and onto our network. Students bringing personal devices to school must follow all Colorado laws, ERA policies, the Acceptable Use Policy and the guidelines set forth in this document. In addition to the rules outlined in these guidelines, students will be expected to comply with all class and school rules while using personal devices.

Eagle Ridge Academy currently provides technology that is appropriate and relevant to support instructional purposes. Therefore, the use of personal devices by students is optional. Students who do not participate in B.Y.O.T. will not be penalized, and alternative modes of participation will be available. However, if particular classes are designated as
technology-based, personal or school-provided technology may be required.

Definition of a Permitted Personal Technology Device (PTD)
A personal technology device (PTD) is any privately-owned technology device that includes, but is not limited to: laptops, eReaders, iPads, tablet devices, netbooks, Chromebooks or other current or emerging devices that can be used for word processing, wireless or wired Internet access, recording of images/sound, email, etc.

Cellphone/Smartphone/Phablets or other devices with a 3 or 4G connection, do not meet the ERA PTD definition and are not allowed in the classroom except with instructor permission and with an educational use defined in the instructor’s lesson plan/s. Cellphone/Smartphone/phablet devices are not allowed on the ERA Network.

Responsibility, Security and Damages
Responsibility to keep the PTD secure rests with the individual owner. ERA is not liable for any device stolen, infected, or damaged on campus, at school functions, or before or after school. If a device is stolen or damaged, it will be handled through the administrative office similar to other personal artifacts that are impacted in similar situations.

It is recommended that skins (decals) or other school appropriate custom identification be used to physically identify your device from others. Additionally, protective cases for technology are encouraged. ERA will not be responsible for any device charges to your account that may be incurred by using the PTD, whether or not the use is during approved, school-related use as outlined in this document.

It is a privilege rather than a right for a student to be allowed to bring personal technology devices to school. When the policies are followed, our learning environment will be enhanced. However, when policies are abused, the privileges may be taken away and confiscation and/or disciplinary action may occur.
