Device of Choice Program

La Salle College High School’s Technology Vision seeks to provide an environment that empowers students through access to technology for the communication of information and ideas. To that end, La Salle’s Device of Choice Program will allow students to utilize the device with which they are most comfortable to access La Salle’s technology infrastructure.

In response to the technology use survey, La Salle recognizes the desire of students and parents to choose the devices students will use while in school. The Device of Choice program lets students continue to develop their technological skills while using a device that meets their personal educational needs.
