Dear Parents & Students,
The Park View High School community has been selected to participate in an exciting new initiative in Loudoun County Public Schools: Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT).
Through this initiative we seek to support effective teaching and learning strategies, as our staff and students utilize their own devices to foster collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity. Staff will receive ongoing professional development during the implementation process. Students will continue to receive education from the Common Sense Digital Citizenship curriculum, a guide that helps students navigate successfully though a connected world. Additionally, our staff will present and remind students about the guidelines for student use of technology in BYOT environments.
Families who choose to participate in the BYOT program are responsible for providing devices that will connect and access the school’s wireless network. Technical guidelines are available on the LCPS BYOT webpage at www.lcps.org/BYOT. If your student does not have a device to bring to school or the device they own is not meant for travel, they will not be excluded from instruction in the BYOT setting.
Students will be responsible for the security of their personal devices. LCPS and/or Park View will not be responsible for loss, damage, or theft of any personal electronic device. Teachers will determine when the use of technology is appropriate for instruction in their classrooms.
Our school is ready for this new path of instruction. We believe the impact in our classrooms will be positive immediately, and we do not want to miss the instructional opportunities BYOT will provide for our students.
