BYOD for Grade 6 and up next school year

BAIS transitioned to the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) model for high school a couple of years ago and this had tremendously helped our students to be independent learners. This next school year (2022-2023) we will be requiring all of the secondary students (grade 6 and up) to bring their own device to school. We realize most of our students already have a device due to online schooling that was forced upon us due to COVID19 and that this transition should be smooth. But, if you would like to purchase a new device for your student, then here are some recommendations on the device:

  • For most middle schoolers, a Chromebook that’s built well for education purposes should suffice
  • If you would like to buy a PC laptop, then we would recommend purchasing a device with at least 8GB of RAM, 128GB SSD (or more) storage and has a battery life of 6+ hours. Ensure that the screen size is not too big; a decent portable PC laptop for school size should have a screen size not more than 15 inches.
  • If you would like to buy a Mac, the Macbook Air M1 with 8GB memory should get the job done for most educational needs. If your child is into graphics and media and into editing videos, then you would want to consider getting the Macbook Pro 13″ or the higher specced 14″ Macbook Pro.

BAIS is also selling some of our old Chromebooks on a first-come-first-serve basis at a very affordable price. If you’d like to order, then please use this link to order and follow the instructions that you’ll receive via email to make the payment. If you have any questions or would like to order more than 3 devices, then please fill out the form and reply to the invoice email. We’ll follow up with you.
