STUDENT/PARENT CELL PHONE OR MOBILE DEVICE CONTRACT
Should a student not have this signed contract on file, he/she will lose the opportunity for a warning and have the cell phone privilege
revoked for the remainder of the school year.
Maintaining the integrity of the learning environment is the top priority
Students will be permitted to have cell phones in their possession throughout the school day. However, cell phone use
will only be permitted before the first bell and after the last bell of the day.
Students MUST have their cell phones turned off during the school day and while being transported on the school bus;
cell phones shall cause no disruption.
During the expressed time when cell phones are allowed to be on and in use, students are encouraged to keep their phone
on a “silent” mode, should that telephone option be available.
Cell phones will not be visible during the school day.
The only exception to the above polices is as follows: Technology including, but not limited to, laptop computers, cell
phones, and personal digital assistants intended and actually used for instructional purposes will be permitted, with the
teacher’s permission and supervision and the permission of the administrator.
Should a student be observed using a cell phone, or a cell phone rings during the school day, discipline action may include but
is not limited to a dean’s referral and confiscation of the phone. Additionally, student abuse of this policy will result in the student
losing the privilege to be able to carry a cell phone permanently, or for a period of time as determined by an administrator.
Student behavior concerning cell phones must be consistent with the School Board Policy 5500.
Student cell phones ringing in class will result in confiscation of the phone and disciplinary action.
Should confiscation occur the phone will only be returned when retrieved by a parent or guardian.
During times of testing and other student evaluations, teachers may request that students remove their cell phone from their
possession, either by returning to a locker or placing under a desk, reducing the possibility of compromised test security.
Fire drills, assemblies, or other school evacuations are considered cell phone blackouts. During such contingencies, there will
be absolute ZERO TOLERANCE on cell phone use.

responsible for any theft or damage of my cellular phone while on school grounds. The school is not obligated to investigate the loss
