  • The Fairbanks North Star Borough School District is excited to announce that a pilot Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program will be implemented at Tanana Middle School during the 2015-2016 school year. Beginning November 1, 2015, students may bring their personal electronic devices – including laptops, iPads, Android Tablets, smart phones, etc. – with them to school. With classroom teacher approval, students may use their own devices to access the internet and collaborate with other students. This will enable students to use a combination of district technology and their own to facilitate the learning. By allowing students to use their own technology on campus we are hoping to increase the access all students have to the technology they need to be engaging and productive learners.
