BYOD @ Providence

BYOD throughout Fairfax County Public Schools is now an automated process and no stickers will be issued. The Acceptable Use Policy in the Student Rights and Responsibilities now includes permission for BYOD, eliminating the need to send in a signed BYOD permission slip. However, when your student brings his/her device to school, he/she will need to meet with a member of the school's tech team for assistance accessing the school's wireless network. For more information click HERE.

Please review the steps below to ensure that your child will be able to utilize his/her mobile device at Providence: 

STEP 1: Kindergarten through 6th grade students should FIRST check with their teacher(s) if they are interested in bringing in their own devices, as each teacher will be able to advise them about when and how they might use personal devices in class. Once the device is brought in, the student will need to see a member of our school's tech team to assist with getting onto the FCPS. Mrs. Shelton and Mr. Rueffert are located in room 107.

STEP 2: Click HERE to educate yourself and your child about BYOD at FCPS.
