BRING YOUR OWN DEVICE

The integration of ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) refers to students bringing a personally owned device to school for the purpose of learning. In 2019 Karratha Senior High School (KSHS) will be moving to this model for all Year 7, 11 and 12 students, with it being optional for Year 8-10 students. KSHS recognises the need to prepare students for a rapidly changing world where technology plays an increasing role in students’ everyday lives. This document is specifically aimed at parents and students who are involved in the “KSHS Bring Your Own Device Program” and details the policy, guidelines and support strategies to ensure that students are able to make effective use of their BYOD and avoid any problems.

MOBILE PHONES
Mobile phones are not permitted to be used by students at Karratha Senior High School.  This has been outlined clearly to parents/caregivers and students through newsletters and assemblies.  Parents/caregivers must ring the school for important messages to be delivered to students.

If a student is using a mobile phone at school there is a specific process to be followed:

  • Student to hand over phone
  • Phone is placed in designated envelope and labelled
  • Teacher to contact parent/caregiver to collect phone at next convenience
  • While it is expected that this procedure will be followed at all times there will be occasions where further steps will be required.
