Chancellor's Regulation A-413 - School Cell Phone Policy
Chancellor's regulation A-413 now permits students to bring cell phones and other electronic devices to school. The School Leadership Team met and discussed the content of this regulation and developed a school-based policy which was shared with the school community. The following policy for the remainder of the 2014-2015 school year is as follows:
- Students may bring cell phones and other electronic devices to school, but they may not be turned on or used at school.
- Cell phones and other electronic devices are to be "off and away"
