Inspiring Today, Preparing For Tomorrow

Bevercreek High School

Beavercreek High School BYOD 

"By keeping our focus on what is best for students in every situation, we will provide them with meaningful opportunities to develop the skills and acquire the knowledge that each individual student needs to be successful once they leave us to pursue their goals and dreams." -Jeff Jones, Beavercreek High School Principal 

Emerging technologies provide new and positive educational benefits for classroom instruction.  The Bring Your Own Device initiative supports the vision of the district and community to prepare our students for life-long learning, critical thinking, and college and career readiness. The goal of this initiative is to prepare our students for the ever-changing landscape of the 21st century. Beavercreek City Schools strives to answer questions you may have by providing the most complete information possible.            

Q: What information will be available to parents and students prior to the January 19, 2016 BYOD implementation?

A parent information night was held at Beavercreek High School on Wednesday, November 4th from 5:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. in the auditorium. The Power Point presentation can be viewed by clicking here.                                                                                                                                                       

Q: How will my student(s) learn how to use BYOD?

Students will be provided additional training in the months of December and January as they prepare for the January 19, 2016, BYOD implementation. Information will be provided on this website as it is released and shared with students.  

Q: Is my student required to purchase a new device?

No. Students are not required to purchase a new device for the BYOD initiative, and may use a device which they already own. 

Q: Where should I purchase my student’s device?

Devices can be purchased at any retailer. Beavercreek City Schools will be hosting a vendor fair on November 4th from 5:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. in the Beavercreek High School commons. Beavercreek City Schools does not endorse any vendor or product, but is providing parents an opportunity to learn about available devices. 

Q: Was community input gathered before planning this initiative?

Yes.   This initiative began in response to the needs identified by our community at the Community Forum held in the Spring of 2014. An excerpt of the needs identified from the forum is available here.

Q: Are there additional opportunities for stakeholder input regarding 21st century technology skills at Beavercreek City Schools?

At a community forum, residents of the Beavercreek school district responded to various questions about 21st century skills and considered the role of Beavercreek City Schools in preparing students for college and career readiness. 
Q: Who should I contact if I have an additional question?
