10.3.1 - Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Policy for Schools
All parish elementary schools and parish and archdiocesan high schools are committed to assisting students in becoming responsible digital citizens. Schools can do so by giving students authentic experiences that build their skills in collaboration, creativity, communication, and critical thinking and that prepare them for their current and future educational experiences and careers. The archdiocesan Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Policy is designed to meet this objective for students who bring or use their own electronic devices in school or as part of their student life.
Students may bring personal electronic devices to school for educational purposes with the approval of the school administration. While at school, students are required to connect to the school's filtered network connection.
Responsibility for Devices and Their Use
Each school may develop its own additional BYOD guidelines to accommodate its individual situation, but all guidelines must be consistent with the policies in Communications Policies and Students and Families. Parents/guardians must sign the Bring Your Own Device Policy Acknowledgement Form indicating their agreement with the school's BYOD Policy.
