As new technologies continue to change the world in which we live, they also provide many new and positive educational benefits for classroom instruction. To encourage this growth, Knightdale High School Of Collaborative Design encourages you to bring your own device (BYOD) for educational use.
BYOD devices are privately owned, wireless and portable electronic devices that can be used for educational purposes within a classroom. BYOD devices are more than just cell phones; laptops and tablets are preferred for classroom use. Students unable to bring their own devices to school will have access to technology available at KHSCD.
Knightdale teachers are using more technology in their classrooms. While personal devices are allowed in the classroom, teachers are not responsible for the repair of any devices. Teachers are facilitators of instruction and should not spend time fixing technical issues with personal devices in the classroom. WCPSS requires that all staff have a “hands off” policy on student devices.
Knightdale High School of Collaborative Design is NOT liable for any device that is stolen or damaged. Responsibility to keep the device secure rests with the individual owner. We recommend using skins (decals) and protective cases for easy identification, differentiation, and protection of personal devices. If a device is stolen or damaged, the situation will be handled through the administrative office.
Students using BYOD devices must adhere to the KHSCD Code of Conduct, as well as all WCPSS Board policies - particularly Acceptable Use Guidelines and Internet Safety.
In bringing a device to school with the intent to use it in class, you are agreeing to adhere to the following:
KHSCD has partnered with Best Buy for Education and Apple to provide discounts on devices (Chromebooks, Tablets, and Notebooks) and services.
KHSCD recognizes that not all students can afford a laptop, tablet, or phone for educational use. Please consider donating your old, working devices (laptops/chromebooks, tablets, phones) to us for tax credit so that ALL students can have a device!!
