As electronic devices become increasingly more sophisticated, they have also become a source of distraction and disruption in the classroom.
In addition to causing a distraction to the instruction process, the proliferation of cameras and Internet-capable cell phones has created incidents of cheating, taking inappropriate photos, bullying, and harassment between students.
Additionally, cell phones compromise the confidentiality of students as well as the integrity of the testing and assessment environment of the school.
Taking photographs or videos of staff or students without the permission of the administration is prohibited and will be subject to disciplinary action.
Violations of this policy may result in the confiscation and/or search of the cell phone/electronic device.
