Bring Your Own Device
The Stanly County School District is changing the landscape of technology in education by implementing a new and groundbreaking initiative. The Bring Your Own Device Program (BYOD) is being implemented at West Stanly High School. Students will be allowed by teacher discretion to bring in devices to use for educational purposes, as an additional resource in class. Our school is very excited about all the possibilities this pilot can offer to our students and teachers.

Access to the District’s wireless network only provides access to the Internet through our web filters for instructional purposes. For detailed information on current School Board policies and procedures please visit the following documents:

Please keep in mind the student is responsible for their own device, it is by teacher discretion, and students will be using their locked lockers to safely store the device. Devices should only be used for instructional purposes. If you have any questions please contact the school.
