Bring Your Own Device - BYOD & Acceptable Use Policy

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) allows students to use a personal technology device on the campus WiFi network. The purpose of this program is to allow students greater access to technology and learning  resources on campus.
  • Prior to participating, both students and parents should review  the “BYOD Responsible Use Guidelines” document which is available at http://www.pvpusd.k12.ca.us/images/uploads/BYOD_form.pdf
  • There are no separate forms to be signed and returned as all students agreed to abide by District’s  Acceptable Use of Electronic Resources policy during Registration.
  • At school, students will create a campus network account with a unique username, password and security questions in order to register a personal device on the campus WiFi network.  This process will be done on campus.
After these steps have been completed, students will be able to register a personal device for WiFi access.
