Bring Your Own Device…aka BYOD
Fairfax County Public Schools has approved the use of registered personally-owned computing devices by students as instructional tools. Devices with Wi-Fi capability that can be registered include laptops, netbooks, tablets, e-readers, and smartphones. Students are no longer required to register their devices at school.
