Cell Phone Policy

MDUSD Electronic Device Policy

The Governing Board believes that the personal use of electronic signaling devices (Cell phones, tablets, walkie talkies, etc.) during the school day creates a distraction, which interferes with the educational process.  Electronic signaling devices are considered to create substantial disorder and interfere with the orderly operation of the school.  Students are not permitted to use any type of electronic signaling device during class time, passing periods or breaks without the permission of the school administration. The electronic signaling device must remain turned off during the instructional school day.

Students who act in violation of this policy shall be subject to the district's progressive discipline, as follows:

   

 

  1.  Initial violation - electronic signaling device will be confiscated by school staff and secured in a safe location.  The electronic signaling device will be returned to student at the conclusion of the staff work day.

  2. Second violation - electronic signaling device will be confiscated and secured in a safe location.  The electronic device will not be returned to the student unless and until the student’s parent or guardian meets with school administration staff for the purpose of clarifying this policy.

  3. Third violation - the electronic signaling device will be confiscated and secured in a safe location.  The electronic signaling device will not be returned to the student unless and until the student’s parent or guardian provides written assurance that the student will no longer be allowed to possess the device during the instructional day.

  4. Fourth violation - the electronic signaling device will be confiscated by the school staff and secured in a safe location.  The student will be subject to suspension.

  5. Fifth violation - electronic signaling device will be confiscated by the school staff and secured in a safe location.  The student will be subject to to loss of school privileges.
