Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Program

The Fisler Foundation recommends the following minimum laptop specifications for students in grades 3rd – 8th when purchasing a new laptop:

  • 13” Screen
  • 8 GB Memory or higher
  • 128 GB Storage or higher (256GB is ideal)
  • Compable with Big Sur macOS

These MacBook models are the recommended models compable with macOS Big Sur:

  • MacBook Air (2019 or newer)
  • MacBook Pro (2019 or newer)

A good current base model would be the MacBook Air:

AppleCare+ coverage is highly recommended for new MacBook purchases.
AppleCare+ extends your coverage to three years from your AppleCare+ purchase date and adds up to two incidents of accidental damage protection every 12 months (with affordable service fees). 

Parents are free to upgrade to a higher model based on their child’s needs.
The above specs are provided as the minimum standard for new laptop purchases.
Laptops will be set up with school software by the District in late July / Early August.
