Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Protocols
At Dayton ISD, we utilize technology as one way of enhancing the mission to teach the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students will need in order to succeed in the global community. These technologies include district‐provided equipment as well as personal devices. With these new opportunities come new responsibilities. We want students to embrace the appropriate use of technology so they may become responsible, digital citizens.
Many classrooms in Dayton ISD are participating in our BYOD initiative. This initiative allows, and even encourages, students to bring personal digital devices to school for instructional purposes.

To revoke this permission, parents should contact the school directly to inform them that their child is not allowed to bring/use a personal technology device at school.
