Beginning BYOT@GuilfordSlide5

Students are responsible for their own devices and making sure they don't get lost or damaged

If a student has a smartphone it must be completely silent- no ringer, text tone, or vibrationAcademic use only- no calling home, texting, checking the weather, or gamesNo recording video, taking pictures, or recording audio unless directed by a teacher

All devices must go through the LCPS wireless network- this allows the internet access to be filtered at the district level (this will not effect your data plan)

Students may use their device only when a teacher has given them permission to use the device. Not for use at lunch or at recess.

Devices must remain in the open, visible at all times, and in the classroom

Students must use their own devices- no sharing
