Allen Independent School District (2011) introduced a BYOD initiative during 2011-2012. The primary concern from the schools at the outset of the implementation seemed to be the potential for students to become distracted form their work and/or access unsuitable materials. Access to the internet is managed and filtered by the district. All students must agree to the Acceptable Use Policy. Useage of devices is at the discretion of the class teacher.

AISD have produced a guide to BYOD for students, teachers and parents. BYOD is limited to high school students. Whilst the guide clearly states that teachers (and the district as a whole) are not to devote any time to technical support for any devices, there is no information on whether this realistic reflects activity in the classroom.
