    Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) Program; Responsible Use and Conduct

    Responsible Use

    DAOES recognizes students participating in the program as responsible young adults and holds high expectations of their conduct in connection with their participation in the program. Teachers may encourage students to bring their own devices as supplemental in-class materials when: (a) using the devices will appropriately enhance, or otherwise illustrate, the subjects being taught; (b) the Building Principal has approved their use and found that their use is age-appropriate; and (c) the student's parent/guardian has signed the Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) Program Participation Authorization and Responsible Use Agreement Form. A student's right to privacy in his or her device is limited; any reasonable suspicion of activities that violate law or Board policies will be treated according to policy 7:140, Search and Seizure.

    Responsible use in the program incorporates into this policy the individual's Acceptable Use of Electronic Networks agreement pursuant to policy 6:235, Access to Electronic Networks. Responsible use also incorporates the established usage and conduct rules in policy 5:125, Social Media and Personal Technology; Usage and Conduct for staff and 7:190, Student Behavior for students. Failure to follow these rules and the specific BYOT program student guidelines may result in: (a) the loss of access to DAOES's electronic network and/or student's BYOT privileges; (b) disciplinary action pursuant to 7:190 Student Behavior; 7:200, Suspension Procedures; or 7:210, Expulsion Procedures; and/or (c) appropriate legal action, including referrals of suspected or alleged criminal acts to appropriate law enforcement agencies.
