    We are in committee in Richardson, Texas discussing BYODevice. Do you have an AUP in place that you would share.

    Our district in AZ is having trouble navigating through the old state text book adoption laws with modern and ever changing e-Resources. How did you do this with yours? Did you just call them resources or do you ask for board approval for each and every one?

    Thanks!

      I’m not sure that I completely understand this concern. It may be because each state is so different, and my school district has a lot of leeway in choosing instructional resources for its students. We have dramatically decreased our spending on textbooks after implementing BYOT. Also, our board does not get involved with every resource that is used by the district for instruction.
