Beginning in 2015, Loudoun County Public Schools will implement BYOT, Bring Your Own Technology, which encourages students to bring their personal technology tools to school for learning. As students utilize their personal technology devices in school, they can learn new ways to use them for collaborating and interacting with their teachers and each other to research information, solve complex problems, create original products, and publish their work. BYOT supports One to the World.
BYOT will be introduced to LCPS students in phases. During the second semester of the 2015-16 school year, Frances Hazel Reid Elementary School will begin to implement BYOT in grades 2 - 5. We stress that this initiative is optional, and not mandatory for all students.
Further information about this initiative at FHR, including dates of parent information nights, will be provided soon.
Additional information from LCPS about BYOT countywide can be found below.
