Bring Your Own Laptop or Tablet
Sevier MS wants to expand 1 to 1 computing so that students in all grades can use a laptop or tablet for class activity.  1 to 1 computing enhances collaboration and creativity, and is very important to STEAM learning.  Students conduct research, produce content and presentations, and interact with peers and teachers to give and receive timely feedback.

School district funds will support 1 to 1 technology for fall 2015.  To finish this school year, we would like for 7th and 8th graders to bring their personal devices so that we have adequate computers for major STEAM units.  Students without an allowable personal device will use existing school laptops. Intended activities cannot be properly achieved with a cell phone, and they are not allowed. Parents of 8th graders who are soon moving to high school may want to purchase a Google Chromebook, now available on the market for under $200. Such a device will be useful and welcome at high school, but NOT required.

Be mindful that looking directly down at a device can cause discomfort and hinder interactions.  If you bring a tablet, be certain that it will angle up from the desk, with or without an attached keyboard. 

Policies for use are posted to the Sevier website.  Classroom teachers will have full authority to determine when and for what purpose, these devices will be used.  Data services (3G, etc.) must be disabled while on campus.  All internet access will route wirelessly through the GCS filtered server. Please make certain that your child understands the requirement for appropriate use.

Students at grades 7 & 8 may begin to bring their own laptop or tablet on March 23.  In order to bring these, Students must first register their device online using the link below, and complete and return the personal electronic device user agreement form.  Current 6th graders will use their school-issued Dell laptops, and are not to bring a personal device.
