    The Quakertown Community School District One to One / BYOD Information is designed to provide students with a learning environment that promotes “anytime, anywhere” learning. This year, all high school students (grades 9-12) will have the opportunity to bring in their own personal computer (laptop or netbook) for educational use throughout the school day. Any student choosing not to bring their own personally-owned computer will have the option of borrowing a computer from the school district. The following options are available to students:

    Option #1

    Students may purchase a netbook or laptop computer independent of the school district for use during and after school hours. Students who select this option:

    • May use the device for personal use after school hours.
    • May install personally-owned software on the device.
    • Assume responsibility for all technical support, repairs and general maintenance of the device.
    • Must adhere to the QCSD Acceptable Use Policy
