Bring Your Own Device

帶上你自己的装置

The selected devices for 2021 are any brand of Chromebook. Families are now invited to purchase a device through a vendor of their choosing, as the school will no longer be facilitating the sale of these devices. We highly recommend opting for the 4GB ram option for the selected models as this ensures that the device loads quickly to ensure a minimum of delay for your child.

BYOD is an option for families but is not a requirement. Students of families who choose not to purchase a Chromebook will have a school Chromebook to use during the school day instead, so they will have the same access as all other students in the class.

In order to 'bring your own device' you need to complete the Gmail account agreement form and the BYOD agreement form, and bring them along with the Chromebook to be set up on the school network.

You are also now able to purchase a Chromebook throughout the year at any time of your choosing. Drop off with the BYOD agreement signed and we will have it set up the next time our ICT technician is available.

We have a range of documents below that outline the organisation and thinking around our BYOD programme.

If you have any queries about our BYOD programme please email our office at office@churtonpark.school.nz
