Bring Your Own Device Registration will resume April 2nd & 4th
Beginning in the summer of 2012, FCPS developed a framework for embracing and managing the use of personally owned computing devices within FCPS. This framework quickly became known as BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and parents are encouraged to allow their students to register and bring in their personally-owned laptops, netbooks, tablets, and smartphones to school for authorized instructional use. To begin using your device please fill out the Personal Device Permission Form and bring it in with your device to one of our registration days. Our two registration days will be the First Wednesday and Friday of every month. Be sure to review the BYOD School Brochure and consider working on the BYOD Student Worksheet before registering your device.
All devices must go thru the approval process and receive a sticker before being used. Students must have the needed paperwork filled out in order for this process to be completed.
