Grading Policy

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. Registration will be taken care of as students connect to the network. Phone usage in class is still at teacher discretion, and students should not use phones in class without express permission from the teacher.
