The Pegasus School curriculum is enhanced through the integration of technology and supported by a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program, which will prepare students for academic success and the challenges of the future. All students are immersed in an age-appropriate, technology-rich environment that motivates, engages, and challenges them and expands their opportunities for learning. We believe in developing the skills, dispositions, and behaviors necessary for responsible citizenship in a global community. Students in Pre-K through Grade 8 will be required to bring their own devices to school every day. Doing so provides them with the responsibility to manage their own learning and utilize technology more effectively than if using a shared device.
In order to best support the teachers’ learning goals in the classroom, students utilize iPads in Pre-K – Grade 1, Chromebooks in Grades 2–4, and MacBooks in Grades 5–8. As we help students prepare for higher learning, we understand that different situations will call for different tools. Since technology changes at such a rapid pace, we believe in exposing students to a diverse range of devices, operating systems, and software to promote choice, foster creativity, and increase self-confidence.
Since each student’s device will be used on the school network, it must be registered with the school. The technology team will install software that will allow students to easily access the network and to prevent access to inappropriate websites.
