How We Teach and Learn

Devices: Taking Devices Home

All students in Grades 1-12 have the opportunity to use their own BCPS device at school for learning. Students in Grades 6-12 may take their BCPS device home. In order for middle and high school students to take their BCPS device home, a parent or guardian must:

  • Watch a short video about proper device use and care, and
  • Sign our Student Device Loan & Use Agreement

New this school year, parents and guardians may watch the video about device use and care online, print the Student Device Loan & Use Agreement, sign it, and send back to school. Parents and guardians may also request a form from their school. Schools will offer opportunities to watch the video and sign the form during events such as back-to-school meetings.

The video is available online as a course through our SafeSchools Training system.

Here’s what you will need to do to watch the video online:

  • Go to the SafeSchools Training system and register or create an account. You will need an email address.
  • Watch the 10-minute Middle and High School Device Loan and Use Presentation.
  • Once you have completed the course, either send in your completed Student Device Loan & Use Agreement or request that one be sent home to you.
  • Your student can then begin to bring their device home!
