BYOD Requirements

Bring Your Own Device Requirements

Students will need to have a device in their possession each school day in order to maximise participation in the learning opportunities and activities presented in their classroom.

The College prefers an iPad (must be iOS 14 or above), however any Laptop/tablet running Windows 10 Home or Pro can also be supported by the College network.

  • Android devices and iPad Mini are not supported.
  • Second-hand and reconditioned devices are acceptable.
  • A keyboard accessory, robust drop proof case & AppleCare protection/warranty are recommended.
  • Minimum storage of 32GB. If your child is enrolling in media type classes, consider getting a larger capacity device to store recorded video.

While you may source your device from anywhere, the College has partnered with JB Hi-Fi to offer a range of suitable products at education specific prices.  If you wish to purchase through this program, please use this link https://www.jbeducation.com.au/byod/?code=byfordsc2022

The College makes every effort to protect students from inappropriate websites, and we recommend that safe internet practices are followed outside of the College as well. Running services such as VPNs to evade restrictions will result in the device being banned from our network. Please see our IT policy at http://byfordsc.wa.edu.au/policies.

Private insurance of your student’s device is strongly recommended as the college is not liable for any damage to personal items.
