Dear OJSH Parents/Guardians,

Onalaska Jr/S High School is launching a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiative this semester. Students in grades 7-12, will be able to bring laptops, netbooks, tablets, or smartphones to use for educational purposes. Having ongoing access to technology will help your child develop greater independence, increase engagement, and develop skills required to thrive in the 21st Century.

Educational Activities
Student devices will be used to access resources, complete assignments, and for personal organization. Educational activities may include researching information, producing documents, analyzing data, participating in surveys, producing videos, reading e-books, creating blogs, taking notes, scheduling events, etc.. The use of the device will be under the direct instruction of the teacher.

Digital Citizenship
A focus of this initiative is digital citizenship, which is the responsible use of technology. Your child will learn digital skills, ethics, etiquette, and online safety. These are important aspects of participating in today’s world.


Safe and Secure
To maintain a safe and secure learning environment, a filtered Internet connection will be provided for students. They will not be permitted to use a personal broadband connection such as a 3G/4G phone network. As well, students will only be able to use their device under the direct instruction of their teacher. Any unauthorized/improper or inappropriate use can result in the device being confiscated and privileges being revoked and punishment imposed according to campus policy.

Students are solely responsible for their device. They must bring it fully charged to school. Similar to other personally owned items, Onalaska ISD is not liable for loss, damage, misuse, or theft.

Technical Support
Resources will be provided to help students connect their device to the school network. Your child must be familiar with how to use their device. Teachers will incorporate the use of your child’s device into learning. However, they will not provide technical support, nor will OISD Technology Dept.

We look forward to the educational opportunities that BYOD will bring. Participation in this initiative is voluntary. Your child will not be left out if they do not have a device. Onalasksa Jr/Sr High will continue to provide access to school owned technology.

Portions of the OJSH Student Handbook Revised for BOYD:

Telecommunication Devices, Including Mobile Telephones

For instructional purposes, the district permits students to possess personal mobile telephones; however, these devices must remain turned off during the instructional day (7:15am to 3:05pm), including during all testing, unless they are being used for approved instructional purposes under the direct instruction of the teacher. A student must have approval to possess other telecommunication devices such as netbooks, laptops, tablets, E-readers or other portable computers.

A student who uses a telecommunication device during the school day, when not under direct instruction of a teacher, will have the device confiscated. The use of mobile telephones or any device capable of capturing images is strictly prohibited in locker rooms or restroom areas while at school or at a school-related or school-sponsored event.

See chart below for related discipline fees and actions.

                Electronic Device Offense Consequences

            1st Offense       $15 Fine          Return to student        

            2nd Offense      $15 Fine          Loss for 1weeks, 3 days ISS

            3rd Offense      $15 Fine          Loss for 2 weeks, 5 days ISS

            4th Offense      $15 Fine          Loss for 1 month, 7days ISS

            5th Offense      $15 Fine          Loss for 2 months, 9 days ISS


Instructional Use of Personal Telecommunications and Other Electronic Devices

In some cases, students may find it beneficial or might be encouraged to use personal telecommunications or other personal electronic devices for instructional purposes while on campus. Students must obtain prior approval before using personal telecommunications or other personal electronic devices for instructional use. Students must also sign a user agreement that contains applicable rules for use. When students are not using the device for approved instructional purposes, under the direct instruction of the teacher, all devices must be turned off during the instructional day. Violations of the user agreement may result in withdrawal of privileges and other disciplinary action.

 In addition, any student who engages in conduct that results in a breach of the district’s computer security will be disciplined in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct, and, in some cases, the consequences may rise to the level of expulsion.
