Program!

We have a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) program in 4th and 5th grades. This is an exciting opportunity that allows for digital learning on a daily basis. Here are some important bits of information:

  • Please note that starting 2018-2019, we are requesting Chromebooks or laptops, NO tablets. We are aware that some families have purchased tablets prior to knowing this. We DO NOT expect you to purchase an additional device, however, we will have Chromebooks for your students to borrow. They may want to bring their tablets to try, which we will allow this year, but in the past three years of doing BYOD, we have found tablets to be unreliable. If you have any questions/concerns, contact Christy Yacano, our Digital Teacher-Librarian at Christy.Yacano@jeffco.k12.co.us.

  • Please be patient and know that many things are changing at a district level so PLEASE DO NOT print anything yet. This site will be updated as soon as we get new information.

  • Devices are used exclusively for learning purposes. NO games on school property.

  • The devices will be used to access educational websites, create digital projects, and collaborate with peers and teachers.  

  • The school provides minimal tech support for personal devices but we troubleshoot as best we can.

  • Our classes will follow these rules in regards to devices:

    • The student takes full responsibility for her/his device. The school is not responsible for the security of the device.

    • The student is responsible for the proper care of their personal device, including any costs of repair, replacement or any modifications needed to use the device at school.

    • The student must comply with teacher's request to shut down the device, computer and/or close the screen in order to secure a student's attention.

    • The student may not use the devices to record, transmit, or post photos or videos of a person or persons at school. Nor can any images or video recorded at school be transmitted or posted at any time without the express permission of an administrator and/or teacher.

    • The student should only use their device to access relevant files, programs, and school appropriate content.

    • The student will use Jeffco secured wireless networks for internet access.  


Finally, bringing a device is optional*. If you choose to send your child with a device, please have him/her bring the device charged and ready to use every day. We are excited to continue offering opportunities for our students to be innovative producers by integrating technology into our learning every day!


*For those students unable to bring their own device in 4th and 5th grades, we will have Chromebooks available to borrow for the school year that can be taken home. We have a limited number of loaners available so they are not guaranteed. See the 1:1 information and links on the left sidebar for information and required paperwork.
