BVSD is committed to ensuring that all students reach the PEAK OF SUCCESS. Our dedicated and innovative teachers integrate technology into their curriculum to achieve this goal.
Specifically, the purpose of the eNav program is threefold:
To boost our student focus on the 7 c's (curious, connected, critically competent, collaborative, constructive, creative, character-centered).
To level the educational playing field for our students compared to other school districts.
To bring the world to our students, enabling research and connections to global peoples and cultures.
All students in grades 6 through 12 are eligible to receive a school-issued tablet at the beginning of the school year to keep as their own. BVHS students may bring their own device to school instead.
School-issued tablets are provided free of charge to students. Part-time students (those taking fewer than 4 classes), will be charged a technology usage fee of $50 per semester. Any damage to devices is handled like damage to library books or textbooks - fines are assessed for damage or loss. The most common fines are:
$20 for lost power cords
$50 for cracked screens
$300 for a lost or badly damaged device
All school-issued tablets are turned in at the end of the school year for regular maintenance. Students will be issued the same tablet the following school year, with a few exceptions. For example, if a tablet was damaged beyond repair, a different device would be issued the following year. It is expected that students will use the same device until they graduate or leave the school district.
Before accepting a school tablet or bringing their own device, all students must read and accept the district internet use policy and responsible use agreement.
