Untitled - Tupelo Public School District

PURPOSE
Providing
students
and
staff
with
a
21st
century
digital
learning
environment
is
part
of
the
Tupelo
Public
School
District’s
core
values.
Beginning
with
the
2013‐2014
school
year,
TPSD
will
be
piloting
a
new
program
called
“Bring
Your
Own
Device”
or
BYOD.
This
will
be
launched
at
Milam
Elementary
allowing
students
and
faculty
to
bring
their
own
personal
electronic
devices
(PEDs)
to
use
at
specified
times
during
the
school
day
for
educational
purposes
only.
We
are
limiting
this
privilege
to
Milam
Elementary
students
and
staff
at
this
time.
Your
participation
in
this
pilot
program
will
help
us
determine
the
best
way
to
carry
out
this
plan
in
other
schools.
Use
of
PEDs
to
enhance
learning
in
the
classroom
will
be
initiated
by
the
classroom
teacher.
BYOD
will
be
expanded
to
include
more
grade
levels
at
the
appropriate
time
as
determined
by
the
District.
As
TPSD
moves
to
more
cloud‐based
learning,
BYOD
will
allow
greater
numbers
of
students
the
ability
to
access
information
from
various
devices
that
have
a
web
browser
and
Internet
access.
ACCEPTABLE
DEVICES
AND
SOFTWARE
No
specific
device
is
required;
however,
the
device
that
we
will
be
using
in
our
pilot
is
the
Lenovo

for
PEDs
will
be
made
available
to
students,
teachers
and
administrators
primarily
for
instructional
and
administrative
purposes.
However,
limited
personal
use
of
the
system
may
be
permitted
if
the
use
(1)
imposes
no
tangible
cost
to
the
district
(2)
does
not
unduly
burden
the
Districts
network;
and
(3)
has
no
adverse

RESPONSIBILTY
FOR
PERSONALLY‐OWNED
DEVICES
•
•
•
•
•
PEDs
brought
to
school
are
the
sole
responsibility
of
the
individual,
including
set‐up,
maintenance
and
charging.
TPSD
staff
will
not
store,
diagnose,
or
repair
any
PED.
Students
and
staff
who
cannot
access
the
TPSD
wireless
network
or
who
may
have
technical
issues
with
their
PED
must
work
with
their
user’s
manual
outside
the
classroom
to
take
care
of
any
issue.
Since
these
are
not
TPSD
devices,
no
District
resources
will
be
allocated
to
troubleshoot
issues.
The
school
assumes
no
responsibility
for
PEDs
if
they
are
lost,
lent,
damaged,
or
stolen
and
only
limited
time
or
resources
will
be
spent
trying
to
locate
lost
items.
Families
should
record
the
serial
number
and
model
information
at
home.
Students
are
responsible
for
knowing
how
to
use
their
PEDs
without
reliance
on
teachers
or
other
school
staff.
PEDs
may
be
subject
to
investigation
in
accordance
with
TPSD
Board
policy
JCDA
School
Searches.
All
content
on
PEDs
is
subject
to
examination
by
an
administrator
if
deemed
necessary.
•
Students
are
to
keep
their
PEDs
secure
at
all
times
and
students
are
not
to
lend
their
PEDs
to
others.
As
with
all
personal
possessions
students
must
not
leave
PEDs
unattended.
NON‐BYOD
PARTICIPANTS
If
you
determine
that
you
will
not
participate
in
the
BYOD
program,
provisions
will
be
made
available
to
you.
Students
without
access
to
PEDs
will
be
provided
an
alternative
way
of
completing
assignments
including
accessing
a
school
owned
device,
sharing
with
partners
or
groups
or
completing
assignments
in
a
different
format.
Non‐participation
will
not
be
an
instructional
barrier.

BYOD
PROGRAM
CONSEQUENCES
The
District
believes
that
students
will
make
the
best
choices
and
take
advantage
of
the
opportunity
to
participate
in
technology‐enhanced
learning.
Every
effort
will
be
made
to
educate
students
regarding
the
BYOD
program
requirements
and
digital
citizenship.
Students
will
be
accountable
for
using
their
PEDs
appropriately.
Repeated
misuse
will
result
in
removal
of
the
privilege.
Administrators
will
use
the
discipline
ladder
below
but
may
enter
at
any
step
depending
on
the
offense.
Access
to
the
District’s
electronic
communications
system
is
a
privilege,
not
a
right.
Noncompliance
with
District
policies
may
result
in
suspension
or
termination
of
privileges
and/or
other
disciplinary
action
consistent
with
District
policies.

for
3
days.
Second
Violation:
• PED
is
turned
in
to
school
administrator
and
returned
to
the
parent.
• PED

FREQUENTLY
ASKED
QUESTIONS
Can
students
bring
cell
phones
(including
smart
phones)
or
tablet
to
school?
Yes,
however
they
will
not
be
able
to
access
Classworks
(a
software
program
designed
to
meet
students’
individual
needs
in
Reading
and
Math)
with
a
device
that
is
not
flash‐compatible.
Cell
phones
(including
smart
phones)
and
tablets
will
allow
students
to
do
research,
but
they
will
have
difficulty
completing
project‐based
assignments
and
activities
like
Classworks
on
them.
In
order
for
your
child
to
work
at
the
same
pace
as
other
students,
devices
should
be
able
to
open
up
multiple
windows,
be
Adobe
Flash‐compatible
and
have
a
keyboard.
Will
students
be
required
to
bring
his/her
own
device?
No,
this
is
a
voluntary
program
and
simply
an
option
now
available.
Students
will
still
have
access
to
the
school’s
technology
resources
during
school
hours.
How
will
personal
devices
be
charged
and
maintained?
Students
will
be
responsible
for
bringing
their
personal
devices
fully
charged
to
school
each
day
and
for
keeping
up
with
their
device
throughout
the
day.
Troubleshooting,
maintenance
and
repairs
on
these
personal
devices
will
be
the
responsibility
of
the
student.
TPSD
staff
will
not
be
able
to
store,
diagnose,
or
repair
any
personal
device.
Students
who
are
unable
to
access
the
TPSD
BYOD
wireless
network
or
who
may
have
technical
issues
with
their
personal
device
will
want
to
refer
to
their
user’s
manual
to
take
care
of
any
issue.
Since
these
are
not
TPSD
devices
no
district
resources
will
be
allocated
to
troubleshoot
issues.
Will
a
laptop
still
be
available
for
a
student
if
he/she
doesn’t
bring
his/her
own?
Yes,
the
district
will
have
MacBooks
and
ChromeBooks
available
for
use
during
the
school
day
in
those
classes
where
technology
is
required.
These
will
remain
in
classrooms
and
students
will
no
longer
be
able
to
take
them
home.
There
is
no
fee
for
usage
of
this
laptop.
How
will
homework
be
submitted?
Regardless
of
whether
a
student
brings
his/her
own
device
or
uses
a
district
device,
all
coursework
will
be
submitted
and
stored
through
the
internet
platform,
the
Cloud,
or
through
our
learning
management
system,
Haiku.
All
students
will
log
in
and
access
the
Internet
through
our
secured
network
as
well.
Students
will
be
given
instructions
once
we
begin
school.
What
network
access
will
students
have
with
their
own
devices?
While
on
Milam’s
campus,
students
will
have
access
to
filtered
Internet
access
only.
Students
will
not
have
access
to
school‐purchased
software
like
Microsoft
Office
or
network
folders
and
resources.
Students
will
log
in
to
TPSD’s
network
with
a
school‐issued
username
and
password.
At
home,
students
will
be
able
to
access
saved
work
in
the
Cloud
and
through
Haiku.
Can
a
student
use
software,
applications
or
programs
of
their
own?
If
a
student
has
them
on
his/her
personal
computer
and
they
do
not
violate
TPSD’s
Responsible
Access
and
Use
Policy
or
guidelines,
those
applications
can
be
used.
This
policy
can
be
found
under
“Board
Policies”
at
www.tupeloschools.com.
What
if
a
PED
is
stolen
or
lost
while
at
school?
Students
are
responsible
for
their
own
devices.
Families
are
encouraged
to
record
the
serial
number
and
model
information.
Will
students
be
able
to
print
from
their
own
PED
at
school?
Students
will
not
have
the
capability
to
print
from
their
devices
in
school
but
will
be
able
to
submit
work
through
Haiku
or
GoogleDrive
and
the
teacher
will
print
if
needed.
Are
students
required
to
add
additional
software
(virus
protection,
filter,
tracking
device,
etc.)
to
their
own
PEDs?
Yes,
they
must
have
antivirus
software
on
any
Windows
device
to
bring
it
on
our
campus.
Will
families
need
to
have
Internet
access
at
home?
No.
It
would
be
helpful
to
have
some
form
of
Internet
access
(wired
or
wireless)
in
order
for
a
child
to
make
full
use
of
school
resources
from
home
but
it
is
not
required
in
order
for
a
child
to
use
a
personal
computing
device
at
school.
If
you
don’t
have
Internet
access
at
home,
students
will
be
asked
to
complete
homework
on
hard
copy.
How
will
a
student’s
education
differ
if
the
family
does
not
provide
an
Internet‐connected
device
to
bring
to
school?
Many
lessons
are
collaborative
allowing
students
to
work
together,
sharing
information
accessed
through
personal
devices.
When
the
work
is
individual,
students
may
use
school‐owned
devices
made
available.
If
you
determine
that
you
will
not
participate
in
the
BYOD
program,
provisions
will
be
made
in
the
building
for
those
students.
Students
without
access
to
personal
devices
will
be
provided
an
alternate
way
of
completing
assignments
including
accessing
a
school
owned
device,
sharing
with
partners
or
groups
or
completing
assignments
in
a
traditional
format.
There
is
no
negative
effect
in
not
participating
in
BYOD.
