Students Set to Benefit from NCLA BYOD Policies

As part of the North Carolina Leadership Academy technology initiative, starting September 1, 2014 students grades 4 through 10 will have the option to bring their own personal wireless communication devices to school and to access the secured filtered network on campus.

To ease the impact of new traffic on the network however, we would like to do this in a tiered approach to analyse network traffic and determine the plausibility of a more open wireless policy in the future. In the meantime however, we're asking students ease into using these devices gradually using the following dates:

9th and up
Any time after September 1st
7th and up
Any time after September 8th
5th and up
Any time after September 15th
All other grades
Any time after October 1

There will be some forms that need to be signed and restrictions on how these devices can be used. Should a large number of unregistered devices join the network these may be IP locked and banned on the campus network... So please click the [read more] button below to review these with your child before sending them to school with a personal device.

NCLA General Announcements 8-29-2014

Student Planners Have Arrived!

We are very pleased to let you know that the Student Planners have arrived and will be passed out to students Friday, August 29th.  These student planners will be used by all students in grades Kindergarten through 10th grade.   It is expected that all student assignments will be written down on a daily basis.  This not only helps to teach students good study habits, but it allows parents to monitor student assignments and communicate with the classroom teachers.  

Please encourage your children to refer to these as they complete their homework and check off assignments as completed.


Students Are Now Able to Eat Lunch in the Multi-Purpose Room Cafeteria!

It was exciting to see our students eating their lunches in the multi-purpose room this week.  It is a beautiful large room with plenty of room for all of our children without crowding.  Now all we need are a few microwaves and toaster ovens for those students who need to warm items.

If any of you are willing to donate small appliances for this purpose, they would be very much appreciated!
