Willis ISD is expanding a pilot "BYOD" program that allowed students to use personal technology devices in the classroom. Willis ISD received a grant from the Texas Education Agency to purchase tablet-style devices. The Technology Lending Program will be available for eighth grade students without access to a personal device.
Attached is the parent letter being sent home that needs to be filled out and returned by January 15, 2013. This form will help technology staff reserve a device for your student.
To borrow a device, you and your student will need to attend a brief 15-minute orientation session and complete the Technology Lending Agreement. The orientation sessions will run every 15 minutes beginning at 3:00 pm and continue until 6:00 pm on January 15 at Brabham Middle School. If you are unable to attend, you may attend the orientation session at Lynn Lucas on January 17 from 3-6 pm.
