Students and Families, Please take a look at the new cellphone and electronics policy posted below. The school board has adopted this policy and this is the policy that will be followed when school starts in August. Please have a conversation with your students! Cell phones are becoming one of the largest issues we deal with, and we are hoping this will help us get back to creating more of a distraction free learning environment for our students! CELL PHONE/ELECTRONIC DEVICES POLICY The New Town Public School District acknowledges parental concern for the safety and well-being of their children while they are attending school or school-sponsored activities. We also understand parental beliefs that students’ possession of cell phones/electronic devices enhances their safety and security. The school realizes, however, that student misuse of cell phones/electronic device: (1) Undermine the learning environment (2) Disrupt academic instruction and distract students (3) Compromise the integrity of student testing (4) Increase disciplinary problems including bullying (5) Violate privacy rights of students and staff (6) Increase the school’s exposure to opportunistic litigation and potential legal liability Possession of Cell Phones/Electronic Devices (1) New Town students in grades K-8 may not have cell phones/electronic devices with data services, or ear buds in classes for any reason. Cell phones must be turned into teacher designated receptacles at the beginning of their first-class period and can be picked up at the end of each day. (2) High school students may use cell phones/electronic devices before school, during lunch, and after school in halls and common areas. Teachers may collect cell phones at their discretion if student use interferes with the orderly classroom expectations of the classroom. (3) Students who attend after school extracurricular activities may have a cell phone/electronic device in their possession. Cell Phone/Electronic Devices Disciplinary Action The publication of this cell phone/electronic device regulation serves as a first (1st) warning to students for disciplinary purposes. Failure to adhere to the terms of this regulation will result in the following progressive discipline. • First (1st) Offense - The cell phone/electronic device shall be confiscated and given to the principal for the remainder of the school day and picked up by the student at the end of the day. A discipline referral will be completed for documentation. • Second (2nd) Offense - The cell phone/electronic device shall be confiscated and held by the principal until a parent/guardian picks up the unit in person at the end of the day. A discipline referral will be completed for documentation. • Third (3rd) Offense - The cell phone/electronic device shall be confiscated and held by the principal and the student will be deemed insubordinate and will receive one (1) day of in-school suspension and a parent meeting with administration and the SRO. A discipline referral will be completed for documentation. • Fourth and subsequent offenses – The student must turn it in to the school office every day. Responsibility for Cell Phones/Electronic Devices—Students are solely responsible for the care and custody of cell phones/electronic devices that they choose to bring to school. The New Town School District shall not assume responsibility for damage, loss, or theft of any cell phone or electronic device. Furthermore, New Town School District shall not assume responsibility for damage, loss, or theft of any cell phone/electronic device that is confiscated according to this regulation. From the school’s perspective, these items should be left at home and not brought to school.
