McClure BYOD P

McClure Middle School is a BYOD school for the 2013 - 2014 school year. BYOD stands for Bring Your Own Device. Students, with parental approval, may bring internet accessible technology to school to use for instructional purposes. This page will have resources for students, teachers and families to use BYOD to its fullest advantage.

You can download an informational PowerPoint presentation here.  This was the presentation shared with parents during the pilot phase of BYOD at McClure.

Permission forms will be sent home with the first day information packet.  You may also download the form below.  Once returned, students will be given a BYOD sticker that should be placed on their agenda.  Device use will begin on Monday, August 12th for those students who have returned their permission forms. Students will only be allowed to use their devices if they have their sticker displayed.
