BYOT Program

KML is a 1:1 BYOT school. 1:1 (pronounced one to one) means that there is one computer for each student. BYOT stands for Bring Your Own Technology, which means that students will purchase and bring their own devices rather than having them provided by the school. In KML’s 1:1 BYOT program, every student brings a laptop that they own to school everyday and then they are able to take it home to use as well.

KML’s 1:1 BYOT program is built around Google's G-Suite (formerly called Google Apps) suite of applications, which is a collection of applications used for word-processing, spreadsheets, email, calendar, file storage, etc. 

The student's 1:1 device must be a Chromebook. 
Chromebook prices start about $250 and you can view the various models available at

KML will offer a group purchase opportunity for Chromebooks during the summer.

What device should I choose?
If you are not sure which Chromebook to choose, here are a couple of tips to help you make your decision:

  • Chromebook screen size varies from 11" to 15".  The 11" - 13" sizes are recommended.
  • Some Chromebooks feature touch-sensitive screens.  This feature is not required for the work done at KML.
  • Chromebooks feature either 2GB or 4GB of RAM memory.  4GB is recommended.
  • If you are buying your own Chromebook or bringing one from elementary school, please review Google’s Auto Update policy (, which effectively limits the usable life of a Chromebook to 6.5 years after the type of hardware in the device first comes on the market, not from when it is purchased or when a particular model goes on the market.
  • If you have specific questions about a device, you can contact KML’s Director of Technology, Joshua Schoeneck at or 262-677-4051 x1121.
