We've made great strides in incorporating technology into our classrooms. We believe that if our children are to excel in a fast-changing, global society, we must provide them with the technology resources they need to succeed in a digital age. 

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) to School

Students in 4th, 5th and 6th grade are allowed to bring a personally owned computing device to school to support their learning.

The use of student-owned devices is restricted to instructional activities under the direct supervision of a staff member. 

Students using privately owned electronic devices must follow the policy stated in Student Rights and Responsibilities while on school property, attending school-sponsored activities, or using the FCPS network.
