Technology can enhance student learning when implemented and used appropriately; however, technology devices can also be a distraction to student learning. Electronic devices may be used in the classroom when the teacher permits.
At all other times, electronic devices are not permitted for use during instructional time. Failure to turn over your electronic device upon request will be considered insubordination and may result in disciplinary action, up to and including suspension from school.
If devices become a distraction, they will be confiscated.
- First offense the student may pick up his/her device from an administrator at the end of the day.
- Second offense will result in the confiscation of the property until claimed by a parent.
- Third offense will result in the confiscation of the property and/or meeting with parents, and/or one day of in-school suspension and thirty days of social probation, which prevents a student from attending school dances, athletic events, and other school functions at home or away.
Electronic devices may be used in common areas during non-instructional time.
Reminder: The school prohibits the use of any video device in or near any restroom, locker room, or other location where individuals have a reasonable expectation of privacy. Taking or transmitting images or messages during testing is also prohibited.
