BYOT

 

 Buffalo Trail Elementary is implementing  BYOT ~ Bring Your Own Technology.

This will allow students to bring privately owned devices for teacher-directed instructional use.  BYOT will be implemented on a grade level basis.  Please contact your child's teacher in regards to their participation.
 
 
Parents, please take a look at the
presentation for information on the voluntary BYOT program at BTES.
                            

Participating in BYOT is voluntary and should be a decision made by individual families. BYOT supplements the devices supplied by LCPS.  Students who do not bring personal devices will be provided with a device to use in the classroom, which ensures that all students will be able to participate in classroom activities.
