    Southeast Raleigh Magnet High School is proud to be a WCPSS Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) School. The BYOD initiative will promote our magnet theme of technology and leadership while maximizing hands-on integration of technology into our classrooms.  Allowing students to use their own smartphones, tablets, and laptops in class for specific tasks enables them to access the newest technology without a costly burden on stretched school budgets for purchase and maintenance.  

    Our students live in a fast-paced, high-tech, global environment where almost everything is on-demand and at their fingertips. They have never known life without the Internet, and they are quite savvy at connecting, collaborating, creating, and sharing online content with others. It makes sense to meet them where they are and use these strengths to promote their learning on devices with which they are already familiar. Through careful planning, communication, feedback, and evaluation by teachers, students, and parents, we hope to prepare our students for life outside the classroom as independent learners in careers that require new skills for constantly changing work environments.  Through the implementation of this initiative, our students will be able to demonstrate the application of digital citizenship.
    Therefore we support and encourage the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) initiative. We empower students to use technology appropriately to enhance their classroom experiences as they prepare for college and career environments. We will prepare students to appropriately use available digital tools to become future-ready, empowering them with the “4 Cs” of Collaboration, Communication, Creativity, and Critical Thinking to make decisions and solve problems. Teachers have the option when to incorporate BYOD into their lesson planning. This document is a contract outlining the expectations of personal device use at SRMHS. Please note that students who cannot bring outside technology will be able to access and utilize the school’s equipment. No student will be left out of classroom instruction.

    BYOD Classroom Management


    Southeast Raleigh Magnet High School uses zone descriptors for device management in the classroom. These zones are listed below:

    1. Red - Usage Prohibited (Your device is powered off, put away, and not in use.)

    2. Yellow - Usage Permitted, Not Required (Your device is on silent and is face down on the desk. Ask before using.)

    3. Green - Usage Required (Your device is in use as directed by the teacher.)

    Parent Resources


    When purchasing a new device for your student, always think about the following:

    1. How and why the student will use the device. 
      Is the device only for school use? Which device is best for the types of work my student will be completing in class?

    2. What is the safest and common sense device? 
      Is one device more practical for common sense reasons? Are there features on one device that would not be safe for them to have constant access to, in or out of class?

    3. Is purchasing this device economical for our family? 
      Is this the best deal? What message does purchasing this device send to my student about my commitment to their learning? Is this device something we can commit to upgrading as needed?
