MOUNT DOUG CELL PHONE/ELECTRONIC DEVICES POLICY
Electronics are not to be used during class time; these should be kept in backpacks or lockers. (“Off and Away Guidelines”)
These devices must not interfere with a productive learning environment.
Unless given permission by the classroom teacher (digital devices may be used in class by students at the teacher’s discretion), the student code of conduct requires that all students keep their cell phones/electronic devices turned off and stored in a backpack or purse during instructional time.
Students who choose not to abide by this rule can expect the following series of consequences to be enforced:
The first time a student uses his/her cell phone/electronic device during class time, the teacher will contact the parents with a reminder of the school’s policy and a request that they discuss with their child the importance of keeping his/her phone/device off and away.
The second time a student uses his/her cell phone/electronic device during class time, the teacher will confiscate the device and the student will collect it from the office at the end of the day.
The third time a student uses his/her cell phone/electronic device during class time, the student and his/her parents will be asked to contact an administrator/counselor to work out a solution for the continued misuse.
