• Exeter Township School District Is E-Reader Friendly

    The district has approved specific e-ink devices that may be brought to school.  Students will not be able to connect these devices to the internet while in school, so digital books will need to be purchased and saved to the device prior to bringing it to school. 

    Devices are to be used in the classroom setting at the discretion of the teacher as not to interfere with classroom instruction.  At no point are these devices allowed to connect to any internet connection while in the school building or while riding the bus.  Students are responsible for securing their device at all times and adhering to district policies. 

    All policies, including the district technology acceptable use policy 815 can be found at on our policy webpage

    Prior to the student bringing the device to school, a parent must sign and return the permission form, "Bring Your Own E-Reader
