Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
All high school students in the Olathe Public Schools are invited to bring a personal technology device (laptop, iPad, tablet, etc.) and connect to the district's network for internet access. This is a voluntary option for students and is not required.
This initiative is being provided to expand opportunities for students to extend their learning at any time throughout the school day.

The district has successfully tested for broad client support for:
- Windows XP and greater
- iOS (iPhone, iPad) 2.0 and greater
- Mac OS X 10.5 and greater
- Android 4.1 to 6.0.1
The opportunity for a student to use his or her own device and connect to the district network is exciting and the district welcomes students to bring their own device. However, the responsibility for keeping all personal devices secure and free from damage rests with its individual owner. The Olathe Public Schools is not liable for any device stolen or damaged due to oversight while under the individual owner's possession.
