District to Hold Meeting on New ‘Gadget’ Policy

The Fairfield County School Board last month approved a policy that permits the use of electronic devices at Fairfield Middle School and Fairfield Central High School. The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy capitalizes on the many electronic devices utilized by students.

The BYOD policy does not permit PERSONAL (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) use of these devices during classroom instruction. Teachers will determine how and when the devices are utilized.

On Wednesday, Aug. 14 at 6:30 p.m., all middle and high school parents are encouraged to attend a BYOD Parent Information Session at the Fairfield Central High School Auditorium to register mobile computing device(s) and sign a BYOD agreement.
