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.
Students who have submitted their signed Acceptable Use Agreement, may, at the discretion of their classroom teachers, begin to use their own technology for academic purposes in the classroom. Students will connect their devices via the LCPS wireless network, and use them for academic purposes.
Students who are not able to bring their own devices will not be left out of learning activities or penalized in any way. Students without devices will be given an opportunity to use a school-owned device while in the classroom, partner with someone who has a device, or complete an assignment an alternate way.
