BYOD at East
Students will need to bring their own digital devices (BYOD) to school each day. They will increasingly be required for NCEA assessment and examinations. For further information please see attached letter.
The Device Guide for caregivers when purchasing a device can be downloaded here - BYOD Device Guide and Information Guide. It is not unusual for devices to only last 2-3 years, so you may need to consider replacement devices in the senior school.
Students are expected to comply with the school's Cyber Safety Agreement when using any digital device on the school network.
BYOD can be purchased from a range of reputable suppliers and you may want to compare prices and features.
