DeSoto schools update technology policy

Posted: Updated:
Hernando -

DeSoto County School District has adopted a new policy governing the use of personal electronic devices so that students may use their own laptops, tablets and smartphones on the system's middle and high school campuses.
   
The policy, adopted unanimously by school board members on Monday, replaces an outdated policy that prohibited use of such devices on school property. Under the new guidelines, students must adhere to rules that limit the types of online content that can be viewed and shared
   
Associate Supt. Keith Williams tells The Commercial Appeal upgrades to the system's wireless infrastructure will ensure that high school and middle school campuses will have the capacity to support the increased usage. He estimated that three of every four students on the campuses will use such devices of their own.
