• What is BYOT? 

    BYOT stands for Bring Your Own Technology, and means that students are able to use technology that their family owns while at school. Although any device will be helpful, devices which allow the student to create content (Netbooks, Chromebooks, laptops, tablets) and which have a keyboard are best suited, and often less expensive than devices designed for consumption (cell phones), but both types of device are acceptable. 
    LCPS selected Freedom High School as a phase 1 school for the county’s Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) program beginning in April 2015. Students who have submitted their electronically signed Acceptable Use Policy, may, at the discretion of their classroom teachers, use their own technology for academic purposes in the classroom. Students will connect their devices to Freedom's wireless network, and use them for academic purposes only. In the near future, BYOT will be common in all LCPS schools.
    Students who do not bring devices will be provided with a device to use in the classroom, which ensures that all students will be able to participate.
