Will the 2019-2020 students in 9th grade be provided with devices, or will they have to Bring your own device? I personally believe that the BYOD policy should stay in place for high schoolers because by that age they might want or need a laptop for personal use so I believe that you should have to Bring your own device UNLESS requested that a device is provided for reasons such as Parents do not have sufficient income to buy a laptop, parents do not want kids to have personal electronics or parents refuse to buy (this should only be in more extreme circumstances.) I understand why the Middle Schoolers get their devices provided, because the parents may especially not feel comfortable with trusting their kids with expensive electronics at that age. (Please do not respond with “Talk to your Teacher”, or “Talk to your Principal” or “Thanks for your feedback!”, etc.)

A.  Students in grades 9-12 will be provided with Chromebooks next year.  Students who would like to supply their own comparable device will be allowed to do so.
