Parents of fifth-graders recently learned about methods their children can use for the school district’s pilot bring-your-own-device program, which is to start in January.

Students have three BYOD options: bring a device from home, lease a district Chromebook or check out a classroom Chromebook daily. A survey will be sent to parents in mid-November to select the option most appropriate for their children. Additional BYOD information is available at www.tinyurl.com/elementary-byod.
