Beginning in the spring of 2015, Loudoun County Public Schools implemented BYOT, "Bring Your Own Technology", which encourages students to bring their personal technology device to school for learning. As students utilize their personal technology devices in school, they can learn new ways to use them for collaborating and interacting with their teachers and each other to research information, solve complex problems, create original products, and publish their work.
The BYOT program at Leesburg Elementary begins November 21, 2016 with all fifth grade classrooms. Fifth grade students must have an Acceptable Use Policy signed by a parent and return the BYOT Student/Parent Contract prior to bringing in their own device. Students will also complete the Common Sense Media Curriculum to earn a Digital Passport.
