Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

At Mount Beauty Secondary College, Senior School students, students learning by a Correspondence subject and identified Individual Education Plan (IEP) students are able to bring a student owned laptop to school to assist with their learning.

Student-owned laptops must meet the minimum system requirements and used in accordance with the Mount Beauty Secondary College Acceptable Use Agreement. The device will need to be networked to our system and will need to have suitable software for use in class. Our school would prefer you to use a laptop rather than a tablet, due to the ease and compatibility of submitting documents between devices.

Please note: It is currently not a requirement for students to bring their own devices for school use. Students without their own device will continue to be able to use a school owned device.
