The Rutherford County Schools BYOD program allows students to use their own personal electronic devices, such as iPods, tablets, or laptops at school for academic purposes. At the discretion of classroom teachers and principals, personal devices can be utilized as a supplemental part of students' daily learning experience.
Why BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)
Rutherford County Schools is committed to ensuring students are provided an environment which maximizes the integration and use of technology by students and staff as part of their daily educational experience. BYOD allows students additional opportunities to adapt, manage, and participate in a technological world, and helps fulfill the mission statement of our system of empowering today’s students to grasp tomorrow’s opportunities.
