BYOD program for 2017
Our curriculum programs are constantly being reviewed to meet the exciting challenges that greater access to technology will provide your child and it is anticipated that by 2018 ALL students will be part of the BYOD program (Bring Your Own Device).
All students from Years 7 to 9 will continue to use iPads. Students in Year 10 can continue to use their iPads, but should be transitioning to Laptops for Year 11 & 12.
Families can purchase devices from any reliable source however for convenience Vermont Secondary College has entered into a partnership with JB Hi-Fi Educational Solutions.
Once a product has been selected, students will be able to add accessories to best suit the device.
An insurance cover option has also been provided as an optional addition, which protects the student’s device from accidental damage.
There are also various Finance Options to families. This includes a one-off upfront payment via Eftpos/BPAY/CreditCard or the option to enter into a rental agreement or 12 month interest free Credit Card Payment Plan.
