SCHOOL AND CLASSROOM PROCEDURES

If you choose to use your phone during a class, or you cause a disruption to others, the classroom teacher will ask you to bring it up, place it on their desk or in a designated area for you to pick up at the end of class. If you refuse to do so, this will be treated as insubordination. You will be asked to speak with the Director who will take your phone for the remainder of the school day.

If an electronic device is being used in a way that may be potentially breaking a school policy, administration may look at the pictures, messages or other content (see District Policy 502).
