Los Altos High School and Mountain View High School are BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) environments, created to support students using 21st-century skills and promote equitable access. Our BYOD system integrates digital technology and “Cloud-based” learning in every class.
Students and families have two options to meet this BYOD learning expectation:
- Students can bring and use their own device that meets or exceeds the standards below.
- Students may check out a Chromebook for their use during the school year from their respective high school book room.
Students are expected to bring their charged digital device to their classes daily, and will be used as directed by the teacher. This device will be regularly used in many classes to find, create and share digital materials, as well as to access a variety of learning tools and materials in the cloud and on the web. Students will also use this same device outside of class and at home.
The “DIGITAL DEVICE RESPONSIBLE USE AND BORROWING AGREEMENT” explains the details of the contract students and families must sign in order to ensure that digital devices are used appropriately while at school.
Should a student choose to check out a school-owned Chromebook, there is an additional agreement outlining the requirements for the use of a school-owned Chromebook.
