Bring Your Own Device

Jeffco Public Schools is committed to helping students learn the skills they need to succeed in a world filled with technology. To make this happen, the district has built a new robust and secure Jeffco Instructional Network.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) will foster student ownership of their own learning, extend learning for students from home to classroom, provide easier access to online instructional material and supplement school equipment.
