Kenmore SHS offers two models for student access to technology in the classroom and at home: A school-managed Choose Your Own Device (CYOD) and a self-managed Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).
1-to-1 Technology Program - 2020 Information
Return of the final two pages of the selection guide below by 29th November 2019 confirms selection of CYOD or BYOD for 2020.
Choose your own device (CYOD)
Choose your own device (CYOD) provides parents with a range of devices to choose from and elect to purchase. The parent initially contributes the cost of the device to the school via a Participation Agreement and an annual Service Guarantee fee of $150 and the school will then purchase the device for their students’ sole use.
All devices come with a 3-year warranty (including battery). Devices are purchased with ADP warranty, which, from our experience, has been invaluable in minimising the cost of damage that devices used in a school-context often receive.
*2019 ADP statistic: 240+ accidental damage claims this year, repaired with $0 excess.*

Bring your own device (BYOD)
Bring your own device (BYOD) allows parents to use an existing family owned device or purchase a new device of their choice that meets the minimum requirements of the school. The student will be required to have the appropriate software to meet the subject requirements that they intend to study.
An annual $100 fee supports running BYOD at the school.
The BYOD device will be able to connect to the school wireless network and access the school’s filtered Internet connection as well as access some of the school network drives. Printing from BYOD devices is supported. Because of the potentially broad range of devices and configurations across all student-owned devices, only minimal assistance might be possible through the ICT Helpdesk for issues beyond connection to the network and licensing of Adobe software.

It is recommended, where possible, families join CYOD.
It is the School's belief that the high quality devices, bulk-purchase pricing, 3-year warranty and accidental damage protection, access to Hot-swap devices and full software and support offered; make the program a great value proposition over the life of the technology device.
