Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) | Kimberly

KSD Bring Your Own Device/One:1 Initiative Information:

Kimberly School District is committed to providing a safe, rigorous, and engaging learning environment that prepares all students to be career and college ready. 

The District recognizes the importance and potential educational benefits of technology. The use of portable electronic devices in the classroom can add educational value when such devices deliver content and extend, enhance, or reinforce the student learning process.

While we understand not all students will be able to bring their own device, we do have policy in place for those that wish to do so.  For students utilizing their own device please know that while at school and using the KSD WiFi, the student’s activity will be filtered just as they are currently.  When at home (with their own device) this filtering will not apply.

Please see board policy 3615 and form 3615F for more information.  Below are the current computer requirements:
