Welcome to Student Resources
NEW SCHOOL POLO'S AVAILABLE!!
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
BYOD is an acronym for Bring Your Own Device. The District defines a device as a personally owned laptop, tablet, netbook, e-Reader, iPod touch or iPad, or cell/smart phone. Students of the School District may now bring their own technology to their school to be used in classrooms under the direct supervision of their teacher. It is the student’s responsibility to comply with Osceola County School District policies in accordance with the Student Internet and Network Use Procedures, Network Acceptable Use Policy, and Code of Student Conduct while utilizing a personal device on school grounds or in any building owned or operated by the School Board.
The student is fully responsible, at all times, for the personally owned device(s) brought to school. The school District is not liable for any loss/damage/theft of a personally owned device. A student bringing a device to school must use the BYOD wireless network and is not authorized to connect personally owned devices to the WIRED network. The student is responsible for the condition of the device brought to school, including updates, antivirus software, and repair. The student may only use personally owned devices for educational purposes during school hours in classrooms/designated areas in which teachers have agreed to participate in the BYOD Program. Outside these classrooms/designated areas, all electronic devices should be turned off and not be visible. No device, personal or otherwise, may be used to record, store, or transmit any type of image, sound, or video from any classroom/designated area, except for approved projects with the express permission of the classroom teacher. If reasonable belief exists that the student has violated the terms of this agreement, or other school or district policies, the student’s device may be inspected and/or confiscated. Subsequent or additional disciplinary action involving misuse of technology may extend to loss of technology privileges or further action as defined in the Code of Student Conduct. Students are not to share passwords or devices with other students.
