A Message to RMS Families from our Principal:
We are excited to inform you that Rolesville Middle School will be participating this year in the Wake County Public Schools System’s Bring Your Own Device Program. The BYOD program involves all students, teachers, parents and administrators working together to create a technologically advanced learning environment. RMS will allow students to bring their own devices (laptops, smart phones, tablets, IPads, etc..) into the classroom. These devices will be used at the discretion of the individual teachers, specialists, and administrators to enhance lessons and learning while at RMS. Teachers will incorporate devices at appropriate points within their lessons to enable students to think critically, visibly and globally in the classroom.
BYOD will grant students the privilege to use their devices in the classroom, however, this is a choice program. Students are not required to bring devices to school and will be provided opportunities to work with school-owned technology if they do not have a personal device available.
Teachers are facilitators of instruction will not address technical issues with students’ personal devices in the classroom. They will provide guidance on how to use devices for learning, but technical support is the responsibility of the students and parents.
Rolesville Middle School is not liable for any device that is stolen, lost or damaged. Responsibility to keep the device secure rests with the individual owner. We recommend using skins (decals) and protective cases for an easy identification, differentiation, and protection of personal devices.
Please review and sign (parent and students) the BYOD agreement in your student's first day packet. Students will be permitted to utilize personal technology only if the agreement is signed by all the parties and returned to the homeroom teacher.
Thaddeus Sherman, Principal
