FCPS does not assume responsibility for the personal property of students and does not purchase insurance for their property. Fairview ES urges parents and students to carefully consider the types and value of property students take to school, especially items with monetary or sentimental value. Unidentified articles found in the school are placed in the lost and found.
BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)
Students are permitted to bring their own laptop computer, tablet, e-Reader, etc… to use for instructional purposes within the classroom. There is a self-registration process that auto-directs devices to a secure, pre-determined network during the registration process. Once connected, students will have access to FCPS resources on their personal devices for the remainder of the school year. Students requiring assistance registering their device should see their school technology support team.
With classroom teacher approval, students may use their own devices to access the internet and collaborate with other students. 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. Student participation in BYOD is governed by the Student Rights and Responsibilities (SR&R) document. Parents and students are required to read and accept the Acceptable Use Policy for Student Network Access within the SR&R document. BYOD permission is now acknowledged by signing the parent and/or guardian signature sheet within Student Rights and Responsibilities.
