We have a "bring your own device" model in the Upper School to allow you and your student(s) to choose the laptop device with which you are most comfortable. Students in Grades 8–12 are required to bring an approved laptop device to school each day and should be prepared to use this primary device at any time during the school day. Students in the 7th grade will be issued a Chromebook to be used during the next two school years.
Below is the list of minimum device requirements for compatibility with the Bayside network. For your convenience, we have also included a list of recommended laptops for both PC and Apple platforms. Devices such as iPads, Android tablets, and Windows RT tablets, as well as eReaders such as the Nook and Kindle, do not meet Bayside’s primary device requirements. While these devices are popular with students, they do not support the full range of specific classroom applications.
