Mobile Technology Devices
The District permits elementary, middle, and high school students to possess mobile technology devices, while on school property or while attending school-sponsored or school-related activities on or off of school property.
The District shall not be responsible for any damage, theft or loss of a telecommunication mobile technology device that a parent voluntarily provides for a student. Students who violate the policy or guidelines governing these devices, to include disruption of the school environment, shall be subject to established disciplinary measures. District employees shall confiscate any mobile technology devices from students who violate this policy.
During testing, use of a mobile technology device is prohibited and subjects the device to confiscation and search. Students are subject to discipline for use of these devices during testing. Further, use of mobile technology devices during testing could result in the invalidation of student test scores.
At Holmes High school, during the school day Personal Electronic Devices (PED’s) must be turned off and not visible unless you are in a school designated ‘electronic device zone’ or using it for teacher approved instructional purposes. Students who violate this policy will have their electronic device(s) confiscated and secured until a parent/legal guardian picks the item up. Additionally, students who repeatedly violate this policy may be subject to escalating consequences to include confiscation of the device for the remainder of the school year. Students should follow specific guidelines regarding Personal Electronic Devices in and Section D of the Student-Parent Handbook which includes the Acceptable Use of the Districts’ Technology Resources.
