Electronic Devices and CELL PHONE PROTOCOL

The staff at O’Donel High School acknowledges the importance of technology in the present and future lives of our students and in a number of instances; we believe personal electronic devices can be used well for instructional purposes. In this regard, the purpose of this policy is to reinforce appropriate, responsible use rather than ban electronic devices from our property. O’Donel supports the initiative of the Eastern School District in encouraging students to use electronic devices for educational purposes but only with the permission of the teacher. However, text messaging, making phone calls, taking photos of students and staff, and music playing are often inappropriate student activities for the learning and working environment. Moreover, these devices must never be used to harass or insult anyone in the O’Donel community.
