BYOD - Charging facilities



In accordance with the school 6 hour minimum device requirements and BYOD code of conduct policy, students are to:

  • Arrive each morning with fully charged devices.
  • Understand that only tested and tagged power leads may be used at school.

  • Understand they are not to charge their devices in classrooms or common areas where they may present a trip and/or safety hazard.

Students may also charge their device at school the following ways with their tested and tagged power lead:

  • Using the provided individual lockers in the PRC and library for secure charging.
  • Use available power points in shared spaces. The power lead MUST NOT be a trip or safety hazard and school devices must not be unplugged for BYOD charging.
