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 the Microsoft suite of products and significant online storage to our students free of cost, along with the full Adobe Creative Cloud suite.

What to Buy?

Through our Bring Your Own Device policy, we’ve learned what works best for students in classrooms. All students must have a laptop which meets the following minimal requirements:

Required Recommended
Operating System Windows 10 or macOS 10.14 (Mojave) Windows 10 or macOS 11.2 (Big Sur)
Processor Windows: Intel Core i3; Mac: Any Windows: Intel Core i7; Mac: Any
RAM (Memory) 8GB 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

Tablets—including iPads—do not meet Trinity’s BYOD requirements. Cell phone use is also not allowed in classrooms, even for academic purposes. The laptop requirement retains all the benefits of our BYOD policy, 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.

We recommend that students stick to what they are already familiar with. If they are accustomed to using macOS or Windows 10, they may want to stay in that ecosystem—it will be one less adjustment for them in high school. Although Trinity is a Microsoft school, there are few disadvantages to using a Mac.

Because new devices come out almost daily, we do not make specific device recommendations. However, we have seen students have great success with the Microsoft Surface line of devices (with the keyboard attachment), Lenovo-branded laptops, and MacBooks.

Please contact Trinity’s Director of Information Technology, Mr. Kevin Wangler at wangler@trinityrocks.com if you have questions or need device recommendations.
