BYOD Policy

BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)

As the world of technology evolves, so does Trinity. In the past four years, we’ve completely renovated and updated our library-media center and technology center. Every classroom has been updated with HD projectors and new audio-visual equipment. We continue to offer free of cost the Microsoft suite of products and significant online storage to our students. We will also begin offering the full Adobe Creative Cloud suite to all students beginning next year

What to Buy?

Through our Bring Your Own Device policy, we’ve also learned what works best for students in classrooms. Beginning in the 2020-21, all freshmen must have a laptop which meets the following minimal requirements:

 

Required

Recommended

Operating System

Windows 10 or macOS 10.13 (High Sierra)

Windows 10 or macOS 10.15 (Catalina)

Processor

Windows: Intel Core i3; Mac: Any

Windows: Intel Core i7; Mac: Any

RAM (Memory)

4GB

8GB-16GB

Storage (Hard Drive)

128GB

256GB SSD or better

Display

10″

12-14″

Misc.

Keyboard, webcam, wireless, 6-8+ hour battery

80211.ac/Wi-Fi 5 or better

 

Next year, cell phone use will not be allowed in classrooms, even for academic purposes. Beginning in 2021-22, the requirement for laptops will be extended to all students. Doing so retains all the benefits of our BYOD policy, primarily allowing families and students to choose the laptop which works best with their learning styles and budget, while also assuring students reap the greatest benefits from Trinity’s technology offerings at school. Please contact Trinity’s Director of Information Technology, Mr. Kevin Wangler at wangler@trinityrocks.com if you have questions or need device recommendations.
