BYOD Program

Overview

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
Information for the 2017-2018 School Year

Jesuit High School is excited to announce the evolution of its one-to-one program, which will expand the iPad program that has served the school well during the last four years.  When we adopted the iPad program, it was clear that this was best device for Jesuit at that time.  As technological tools and platforms have developed since then, Jesuit has determined that a different approach to the one-to-one program will better serve the students and teachers.  We will now take advantage of more recent developments and trends in educational technology that offer a variety of options to better serve the learning needs and preferences of our students.  

Jesuit will adopt a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program starting in the 2017-2018 school year.  This means that families will be able to choose a device to bring to school from a list of recommended devices that meet minimum specifications.  We chose this program for several reasons:

  • The prevalence of web-based tools and non-device specific programs
  • The desire for students to be able to produce original work
  • The ability for students to customize their learning experience
  • The budgetary realities of each family
  • The freedom for students to choose a device that fits their comfort level and interests

So, how does this work?  Families will be able to purchase a device that meets clearly defined functional requirements.  The links below will describe these requirements and offer examples of approved devices to help families make informed decisions.  Please consider the following steps before purchasing a device for your family:

  • Review the recommended devices and minimum requirements
  • Attend the information sessions offered this spring and summer in order to see examples of these devices  
  • Research the capabilities and prices of the specific device in which you are interested
  • Purchase the device that best meets your family’s needs
  • Select textbooks/ebooks based on your new device

While this program allows for choice and customization, student devices are required to meet several requirements.  The list of minimum requirements is located here:  Minimum Requirements

We have also created a list of recommended devices that is meant to help families narrow their search, not dictate specific devices.  This list is located here: Recommended Devices

If you have any questions about the BYOD program, please take a moment to review the FAQ found on our website:  BYOD FAQ.
