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 provide standard access to information technologies during the school day under the direction of intentionally-minded teachers
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 for use at school and home. BVHS students may bring their own device to school instead. T
Elementary students have access to school devices for specific projects and tasks as assigned by teacher for use at school only.
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.
