Bring your own device (BYOD) refers to students bringing a personally-owned device to school for the purpose of learning. A personally owned device is any technology device brought into the school and is owned by a student or the student's family. Canobolas High School students will be asked to bring their own laptop or tablet to school. The laptop or tablet must be able to connect to the school WiFi and have specific software or apps installed.
Below are documents that students and their families will find useful in their decision and preparation of bringing a personally owned device to school. BYOD @ Canobolas High School information sheet

You are required to sign a user charter that sets out how the device can be used at school.
A member of the school staff, The BYOD Technical Support Officer, is available to answer questions and give assistance. However, the school does not manage, support, own or warranty the device - it's your device.
