Bring Your Own Technology Initiative

BYOT Guidelines

Starting Tuesday, 1/27, we will have a central, dedicated location for students to earn redemption hours. Our library will be open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 3:00-5:00pm specifically for students needing to redeem credits. Mrs. Jenkins will be joined by two teachers, and they will work with students needing assistance, as well as ensuring that our redemption students are using their time productively. As stated on the redemption contract, students have other options for redeeming credits lost due to attendance, but this one is especially helpful because of the consistent availability. Non-redemption students may also be in the library, but Mrs. Jenkins and the two teachers will direct their efforts towards the redemption students first and foremost.

Redemption Expectations

  1.  Upon arrival, student must check in with a Late Night Lamar instructor.  Not doing so, will invalidate the earned hours for the specific day.
  2. Student must sign in and sign out every time he/she comes in or leaves the library (even to go to the bathroom). Not signing in or out will invalidate the earned hours for the specific day.
  3. Student must have his/her redemption form or make arrangements for the document.
  4. Student must work with assigned instructor.
  5. Student must be working.  Sleeping, sitting, doing nothing, talking/playing on phone, playing computer games etc. will not be allowed.
  6. Student will follow all school rules and expectations.
  7. Late Night Lamar is a privilege and any student not following the expectations may be asked to leave.

Parent Satisfaction Survey

The Arlington Independent School District is committed to becoming a premier school district in the United States. To continue to move forward in this journey to excellence, the district is continuing to gather data from stakeholders to determine where we are as a district and to set realistic, measurable goals for continuous improvement.
The parent satisfaction survey allows parents to provide input on parent engagement for each school. Please communicate with your parents in the most effective way and ask them to complete this short survey (about 10 minutes). The survey can be accessed online at
