NMPS Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Program
Technology has become part of our district's culture in all classrooms. Although North Muskegon Schools provides Chromebooks, Netbooks and desktop computers in our schools, an ever increasing number of students bring their own devices to school, allowing NM teachers to remain at the cutting edge of teaching curriculum through technology.
Students may bring any brand Chromebook. The Chromebook MUST have wireless Internet to function. They may also bring a PC laptop with Microsoft Windows 7 or 8 operating system or Apple OS, and recommended 4 GB RAM of memory. Antivirus protection is the owner’s responsibility. You must purchase an antivirus program and run regular virus scans. Although iPads and other model tablets are convenient for most purposes, the mobile apps do not provide some of the features needed in class. We will allow these (with an external keyboard attached) to be used for our program at the teachers discretion if it meets the need of the curriculum or current project.
