1:1 Device Programs - CYOD and BYOD
The Gap State High School requires students to have their own device as part of our 1:1 Laptop program.
In 2022, we continue our Choose Your Own Device (CYOD) laptop program along side our existing Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program. The laptops are parent-funded, school-owned, purchased and managed.
The laptop reverts to parent ownership at the end of the student enrolment or life of the laptop. School ownership confers significant advantages when purchasing, managing and in cases of accidental damage or theft off the premises.
For 2022 it will look as follows:
Year 7 - CYOD laptop program*
Year 8 - CYOD laptop program*
Year 9 - Laptop highly recommended - CYO/BYO
Year 10/11/12 - Students will be expected to bring a laptop - CYO/BYO
From 2022 we ask all families to endeavour to join the CYOD program.
* New Enrolments may still use BYOD laptops and iPads if devices have already been bought in Year 6 or at other schools.
Students learning is enhanced by our schools use of online platforms and resources. This included access to Stile (online learning platform) , Box of Books (digital textbooks), Office 365, ClickView, eBook libraries and a huge range of subject specific tools and resources.
