About the bring your own device program

The bring your own device (BYOD) program allows students from Years 7 to 12 to bring in a device that suits their own educational requirements. 

Students who bring a device to school are responsible for that device. Crestwood High School will not take any responsibility if a device is damaged, lost or stolen. Smart phones will not be connected to the network.
