DAVIESS CO., KY (WFIE) -

Daviess County and Apollo high school students will have the option to bring their own laptops, netbooks or other computing devices to school starting in August, expanding the district's eLearning project that began in 2003.

Schools across the country are implementing the "Bring Your Own Device" program to increase student access to Internet and digital content.

The high school technology fee is reduced for students who provide their own devices.

For students who choose not to "BYOD," the district will continue to provide laptops.

DCPS Technology Integration Specialist Aaron Yeiser says, they want students to use the devices they feel most familiar and comfortable with.

So if students are used to it at home, they will be used to it in the classroom.

The devices must meet recommended specifications for classroom use and connectivity to the district's secure network.  

Parents may enroll their children online at http://www.dcps.org/BYOD. 

The site also includes recommended computer hardware specifications and software that should be available on any device a student takes to school.
