Vestavia Hills City Schools is committed to aiding students and staff in creating a 21st century learning environment. We are beginning our second year of implementing “Bring Your Own Device,” or BYOD. For purposes of BYOD, “Devices” are personally owned wireless portable electronic equipment used for instructional purposes. Students in BYOD classrooms may be allowed but not be required to bring and use personal, portable, electronic devices starting at the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year. In order to comply with Federal regulations, all student owned devices will be subject to Internet filtering policies.  VHEC is a 100% BYOD school.
