Bring Your Own Technology 
Farmwell Station Middle School participates in BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology).  Students are encouraged to bring a privately-owned “Internet-ready” device to school. Devices may include but are not limited to laptops, netbooks, tablets and e-readers.  Although cell phones are permitted, students are more productive with devices that have a keyboard and larger screen.  Families looking to purchase a device may want to consider laptops, windows tablets or Chromebooks.  For more information visit BYOT FAQs
