Herron High School’s commitment to the educational advantages of technology in the classroom means that students will be making the most of 21st-century learning, as well as practicing the fundamentals of digital citizenship and online safety. Technology is frequently used in all of Herron High School’s classrooms. Students are expected to have an acceptable device available for use in every class.
At Herron Classical Schools, we have implemented a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program as an integral part of our educational framework. It is mandatory for students to bring and utilize a personal tablet or laptop computer for each class they are currently enrolled in.
To effectively facilitate your educational journey, uphold the integrity of our digital ecosystem,and to seamlessly integrate with our academic resources, your device must possess these essential features:
While it is the responsibility of families to provide their students with an appropriate device, we understand that circumstances may arise where this poses a challenge. Herron High School is committed to supporting our students and families by offering a limited number of scholastic devices to be rented for all or part of the academic year. These devices will range from $150-200 per year dependent upon your Free and Reduced lunch status. This provision is intended to bridge the gap and ensure equitable access to educational tools for all students, irrespective of their circumstances.
Additional information on how to obtain a yearly rental device will be released later this summer. If you have any questions, we encourage you to reach out to our dedicated technology faculty or administrative staff, who are readily available to assist you.
Students are not allowed to use nor have in their possession any unauthorized electronic devices during the school day. Unauthorized electronic devices include, but are not limited to: cell phones, smartwatches, pagers, headsets, radios, tape recorders, mp3 players, CD players, iPods, etc. Students are not allowed to use unauthorized electronic devices during lunch, passing periods, seminars, in the bathrooms, or on field trips.
Exceptions to this rule are made for electronic medical devices required to monitor health conditions and assistive technology devices for qualified students.
