Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

Paintsville Independent Schools will initiate a 1-1 Technology Plan, which will begin during the 2015-2016 school year, where the district will be purchasing Google Chromebooks at both Paintsville Elementary and Paintsville High school.


Here is the link to the make/model of the chromebook our district purchased for our students. http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-C201-11-6-Chromebook-Rockchip/dp/B00VQP3DNY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1437344997&sr=8-2&keywords=asus+chromebooks&pebp=1437345006586&perid=1TP10381KXTDMCJZ4G3V


The Paintsville Board of Education recently approved a BYOD(Bring Your Own Device) policy, so students can bring their own devices and use in the classroom.  We encourage students to bring their own devices for use at school, in grades 5 and up. 


Under the downloads section, you can read about our plan, as well as download our BYOD policy. 


For the 2015-2016 school year, the Paintsville Independent School District will not obtain the services of SchoolCast to provide a stakeholder “all call” information system.  At this time, we are exploring potential options to provide a cost-effective method to distribute district wide information.


Until further notice, the Paintsville Independent School District will provide official announcements through the following sources:

Radio:                   WKLW, WSIP, WQHY

Television:          WYMT, WKYT, WSAZ

Newspaper:       Paintsville Herald, Big Sandy News, Around Paintsville

Websites:            Paintsville Independent Schools, Paintsville elementary  school,  Paintsville High School


Additional radio & television sources will be added at a later date.  If your organization wishes to have information added to school/district websites, please contact the building principal to receive approval.  After approval, please contact Joseph Schmitt, Director of Technology, or  Bryan Auxier, ARI Grant Coordinator.
