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 an online form that is available by clicking here.
Lunch Application
Now you can apply on-line for your children to receive free or reduced price school meals. Your application will be sent from this secure web site directly to your school district, so you don’t need to worry about filling out a paper form that could be lost or misplaced. LunchApplication.com is designed to make it easy for you to know exactly what information you need to provide and to guide you through the process. Your school district will determine your eligibility and send you a letter with the results. LunchApplication.com is an easy, secure and convenient way to apply for free or reduced lunch.
