IT devices are powerful means of differentiating and personalising a student’s education. We are committed to introducing this option for families in 2018. 
Elanora’s program follows the guidelines outlined for Queensland State Schools and is closely aligned with processes in other primary and high schools in our cluster. The Australian Curriculum guides our Digital Technologies curriculum implementation as we embed the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Capabilities to progress students from being technology consumers to creators. 
Parents who wish to know more about the program can email byod@elanorass.eq.edu.au​.​​
 
Elanora State School BYOD Participation Process
Step 1: Parents and students wanting to take part in the program, should download the following documents.

Step 2: Choose your device in accordance with the Minimum Hardware Specifications, as outlined in the BYOD Handbook. If you have any questions about whether a specific model computer will meet the requirements, please contact the Elanora State School IT Department at byod@elanorass.eq.edu.au​

Step 3: Contact the office to make an appointment. Bring your device to school to have it checked to ensure it meets the Hardware Minimum Specifications requirements.

Step 4: Complete the BYOD Participation and Connectivity Request Form, and the Responsible Use Agreement section contained in the BYOD Student Charter (page 15). Return these documents to the school office.

Step 5: An invoice for payment of the Connectivity and Licensing Fee of $35 will be raised upon approval of the Participation and Connectivity Request form. N.B. All invoices will be raised in Term 1, 2018.

Step 6: Payment is made.

Step 7: The school will contact the student to arrange an appointment time to onboard the device.

Step 8: Parents and students will be advised of dates of induction sessions, to be held in Term 1, 2018.

 
Parents may find the purchasing portal helpful. Alternatively, most of the large electrical stores also support BYOD programs in schools. Parents are encouraged to make their own decision about where to purchase the device.
