When appropriate for use in the classroom, some teachers allow the use of students' personally owned devices for specific instructional use if a parent/guardian signed BYOD form is returned to the school. 

Students must use the district’s secured wireless network (NHCS_BYOD) and have a working knowledge of their own device and be able to follow directions on how to connect their device to the NHCS_BYOD network. 

For more information about the NHCS BYOD policy, the Student Agreement Form, well as directions for access on a variety of devices, visit the NHCS BYOD webpage.
