Appropriate Use of Electronic Devices

ELECTRONIC DEVICES:  Education Code 48901.5

The use of portable radios, mp3, iPods or disc players, electronic games (such as “PSP”, “Gameboy”), cell phones and pagers can be disruptive to the educational process.  It is against school policy for electronic devices to be seen, heard, or used during instructional time by a student.  Temporary confiscation will result if the rule is violated.

First Offense:         

Confiscated items can be picked up only by the parents/guardians of a student between 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. during the week in the Main Office or by appointment with an Administrator.

Second Offense:     

If a student continues to be found using his/her electronic device during instructional time, the item will be confiscated and the student must meet with an Administrator prior to the release of the item to the parent/guardian. Students caught using devices more than once are also subject to disciplinary action as determined by the Principal.



Any student found sexting may be reported to local law enforcement.
