The BYOD program is offered to all students in Years 7-12 and allows students to bring a privately-owned laptop to school every day for use in class.
Our BYOD program assists students to improve their learning outcomes in a contemporary educational setting and recognizes the demand for seamless movement between school and home. By assisting students to become responsible digital citizens, the teaching learning process and the achievement of student outcomes are enhanced as well as the skills and experiences that will prepare them for their future studies and careers.
Access to the department's ICT network is through BYOx Connect, a DETE approved on-boarding system. Access is provided only if the laptop meets the department's security requirements which, at a minimum, requires that anti-virus software has been installed, is running and is kept updated on the device.
Steps to joining the BYOD Program
