BYOT stands for Bring Your Own Technology, and is an initiative for students to bring their own Internet-enabled devices to school. Devices that allow the student to create content (e.g. laptops or tablets) and that have a keyboard are best suited for our students. Phones or other devices that connect to 3G or 4G networks are not recommended as they can connect to open (unfiltered) networks. All devices should utilize our LCPS- Open WiFi to connect to the filtered school network as necessary.
Sycolin Creek Elementary will begin joining the county’s Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) program this school year, with the start of the second quarter in November 2016. Students participating in this program will be expected to follow what is outlined in the "acceptable use" contract regarding technology.
Students who do not bring their own devices will not be left out of learning activities or penalized in any way! Students without their own device will use a school-owned device such as a Windows laptop during BYOT time.
