FTG's 1:1 Initiative - BYOD

Fort Gibson Public School District is committed to aiding students and staff in creating a 21st century learning environment. Our BYOD/1:1 (Bring Your Own Device) initiative has been allowing student to have laptops/devices at school during class time since the 2013-14 school year.Students and staff have been and are still able to access our wireless network with their personal devices (laptops, netbooks, tablets, etc) during the school day. With classroom teacher approval, students may use their own devices to access the internet and collaborate with other students. Many schools across the nation are implementing Bring Your Own Device policies for their students and staff. By allowing students to use their own technology on campus we are hoping to increase the access all students have to the technology they need to succeed.   

Why are we doing this?

  • Applications accessed by a web browser eliminate the need to have specific software loaded onto every student computer.
  • Cloud based computing allows students to access their information from any computer with a web browser.
  • The current economic times require unique strategies to ensure every student has equitable access to online resources.
