Bring Your Own Device Pilot Guidelines

BYOD

Orange Unified School District

Bring Your Own Device Pilot Guidelines

In an effort to increase the use of technology and the 21st Century skills of` creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication OUSD will allow personal devices on our wireless network for students who follow the responsibilities stated in the student Acceptable Use Policy and the attached guidelines regarding BYOD. An important component of BYOD will be education about internet Safety. As part of this program, we will review the Internet safety guidelines with students frequently throughout the course of the school year and will offer guidance on safe online behaviors. In addition to the rules outlined in these guidelines, students will be expected to comply with all class and school rules while using personal devices. The use of technology is a privilege and if abused, may be taken away.

Direct Donation Campaign

Kids
Your AHES PTA is changing the direction of its fundraising this year. Instead of take-home fundraisers (like cookie dough, Entertainment books, etc.), we are asking for Direct Donations from our AHES friends and family.

Why Direct Donation?

WHAT IT IS…

Direct Donation is a very quick way for our school to earn money for our teachers and children without fundraising. It eliminates hassles and 100% goes directly to the classroom.

WHAT IS IN IT FOR YOU…

It is safer and more efficient than door to door sales. When we sell cookie dough, for example, you pay $13 a bucket. Only 40% of that, or $5, actually comes back to our school. With Direct Donation, it is 100% tax deductible for you and 100% income for the school! Win, win!

Please donate using the Donate button below.

Reflections

“The world would be a better place if…”

Due: Friday, October 20th

The Reflections Arts Recognition Program is a national arts recognition and achievement program for students. Since 1969, over 10 million students across the nation have taken part in this popular PTA program.

The excitement and enthusiasm that the program generates for students, parents, schools and communities is unmatched with the majority of California PTAs participating in the program at all PTA levels.

That’s why the Reflections Program provides an excellent opportunity for students of all ages to:

  • Unleash their creative talents and be inspired
  • Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork
  • Experience the joy and fun of making art
  • Tap into critical thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme
  • Receive positive recognition for their original works of art

To get involved, students submit an original piece, inspired by the annual theme, for their school’s Reflections Program in any of following arts areas:

  • Dance Choreography
  • Film Production
  • Literature
  • Music Composition
  • Photography
  • Visual Arts
