BYOD at Braswell
Braswell High School is committed to developing a technologically relevant and engaging learning environment for all students by providing them with the opportunity to develop the resource sharing, innovation, communication skills, and tools that are essential to both life and work in the 21st Century.
Students are encouraged to BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) at Braswell High School. The device can be any piece of technology that allows students to access the Internet through the Denton ISD WiFi. Suggestions for devices include:
