BYOT, or Bring Your Own Technology,
is an initiative of Cabarrus County Schools to allow students and staff to bring their own devices (laptops, netbooks, tablets, e-readers, iPads, iPods, smart phones, etc.) to school to use for instructional purposes and school business.  The faculty and staff of Mt. Pleasant Middle School want to encourage students to assess their own learning needs and be able to determine which tools(devices and online tools) will successfully meet their needs.  We believe students are capable of making intelligent, innovative, and appropriate choices.
Before students may bring their own devices to school, parents and students must read our BYOT guidelines and complete the online form that can be found at the following link: https://sites.google.com/a/apps.cabarrus.k12.nc.us/mpms-byot/
