In our continuous efforts to engage your child in their learning, Kimpton Middle School is allowing students to bring personal technology devices (i.e. cell phones, iPads, Nooks, Kindles, Laptops, Netbooks, etc.) to school to be used for educational purposes.
We piloted the BYOT program during the spring of 2012 and found, even with a few bumps, it was very successful. Beginning the first day of school, your child will be permitted to use personal technology devices (i.e. cell phones, iPads, Nook, Kindles, etc.) in classrooms for educational purposes only. Your child is permitted to use their device under the direct supervision of their teacher(s).
On the first day of school, the students will be introduced to the BYOT program and we will answer all their questions. Please see the two attachments the students will be given - 1) My letter to Kimpton Families describing BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology), and 2) Question & Answer document
