The CBE recognizes the need for all people who work and visit our school to have access to technology as part of the learning process, and has established a procedure for making internet access available to devices that are not CBE owned or managed. This is called the LAWN (learner accessible wireless network) and will allow students to bring their own laptops, itouches, etc. to school when the opportunity arises in our classrooms.
We are not asking you to go out and make a large purchase of any of these items. This is only an extra opportunity for students to enhance their learning experience.
Any student bringing their own technology to school cannot use it to support their learning unless there is a signed contract between the student and parent filed in the school. This contract provides assurance to the parent that the student understands the roles and responsibilities associated with using technology appropriately in the classroom, and acknowledges the school cannot be responsible for theft or loss of devices so the student must be accountable for the whereabouts of their personal technology at all times. If the opportunity arises to bring in their own technology, a contract will be sent to you to review and sign.
