     BYOD
     
    BYOD is turned off and will remain off until further notice due to testing and other operations where BYOD is impacting network performance.  The policy states that we do not require students to bring devices to school.  We encourage it, but it is not a requirement and they have the option.  If devices are used at school for the rest of the year students will be using their own data packages.

    Notice to Tuscaloosa County School System Families:
    Along with maintaining our instructional program, student safety remains as our greatest concern. In times of threatening conditions due to severe weather, we have developed a plan throughout the Tuscaloosa County School System to allow for a delayed opening of school. If such action is required, the time for the opening of school will be announced through all normal media outlets, system website, and parent notification system. Bus transportation schedules will be adjusted to allow for the delay and breakfast will be offered upon students' arrival to school. Schools will follow their regular afternoon dismissal plan. If absences are related due to severe weather, please contact your local school administrators.
