Students in Middle School will need to bring their own device. We suggest that the device be a chromebook or laptop.
Here is a Device Comparison Chart which outlines the minimal requirements for a chromebook or laptop.
This chart is a guide to help in the selection of a device for your child. We also strongly encourage students to have a protective cover for their device.
These are the goals for the Middle School BYOD expectation. Please remember that a Chromebook or laptop is only a tool to enhance learning and not a learning outcome by itself.
■Enhance and accelerate learning
