Ridgewood Local School district is committed to moving toward a 21st century learning environment. As a part of this commitment, the district will be implementing a plan to allow students to access our wireless network, using their own technology beginning school year 2013-2014. With teacher/staff approval, students will be able to access a filtered Internet connection to be used for educational purposes. We realize that not every student owns a device; for those who do, some may choose not to bring their personally-owned technology to school. Although research shows a marked improvement in attention, attendance, graduation rate and achievement of academic goals with a BYOT initiative, there is no expectation that parents should provide a device for their child for this program.
