What does BYODD stand for? Why has Clancy moved to a BYODD model?
Bring Your Own Designated Device. Our College has chosen a specific device for our 1:1 Program. The Sydney Catholic Schools’ funded model for student devices has ended and therefore we are now required to move to a BYODD model.
What device has been designated by the College?
11″ or 13″ MacBook (Air or Pro).
The laptop must also meet the following specifications:
- 1.6GHZ i5 Processor
- 8GB RAM
- 128 GB Flash Storage
- 3 Year Onsite AppleCare Warranty

What if i already have a Macbook and i want my child to use this?
