Buffalo Trail Elementary is implementing BYOT ~ Bring Your Own Technology.
This will allow
students to bring privately owned devices for
teacher-directed instructional use. BYOT will be implemented on a grade level basis. Please contact your child's teacher in regards to their participation.
Parents, please take a look at the
presentation for information on the voluntary BYOT program at BTES.
Participating in BYOT is voluntary and should be a decision made by individual families. BYOT supplements the devices supplied by LCPS. Students who do not bring personal devices will be provided with a device to use in the classroom, which ensures that all students will be able to participate in classroom activities.
