Bring your own device.

BYOD - Bring Your Own Device

The vision of the New Zealand Curriculum, is to foster young people who will be “confident, connected, actively involved and lifelong learners”. In the 21st century, eLearning is becoming fundamental to enabling this vision.

We wish to create a more accessible, diverse, and dynamic learning environment for Pasadena Intermediate School students, one that reflects the world we live in.

BYOD is an option at Pasadena Intermediate School. We strongly encourage students to bring their own devices to school to use as a tool for learning. The only requirement for devices is that they can use a wireless network, and are used on battery power.

Pasadena Intermediate Bring Your Own Device Agreement

To the parent/caregiver/legal guardian, please:


  1. Read this page carefully with your child to check you both understand your responsibilities under this agreement.
  2. By ticking yes on the enrolment form I agree with the below conditions and have discussed these with my child

School Responsibilities

At our school, we will:

  • encourage safe and effective use of technology and the internet
  • work within the school’s digital technology guidelines
  • provide clear guidelines around the use of devices brought from home
  • provide safe storage for students’ devices when not in use, e.g. break times.

If a student breaches the BYOD agreement, they may lose the privilege of bringing their own device to school, and the school’s behaviour management plan may be invoked.

Student Responsibilities

When I bring my device to school I will:

  • follow the school’s digital technology rules
  • use my device when and where the teacher gives me permission
  • only access the internet with the teacher’s permission and if an adult is present
  • only use my own login and password
  • be in control of my device and not share it with other students, apart from letting them see the screen
  • charge my device at home so that it doesn’t need charging at school
  • take care of my device so that it isn’t damaged or stolen.

I will not use my device to be mean, rude, or offensive to anyone.

Parent Responsibilities

I give permission for my child to bring their device to school and I will:

  • encourage them to use it responsibly
  • take an interest in how they are using the device
  • be aware of the content and applications on the device
  • be responsible for the device’s maintenance and insurance
  • keep a record of the device’s serial number and details
  • contact the school if I have any concerns about cyber safety or other related issues.


This agreement for your child will remain in force as long as he/she is enrolled at this school. If it becomes necessary to add/amend any information or rule, parents will be advised in writing.
