CELL PHONES/ELECTRONIC DEVICES
Students are allowed to use their electronic devices in common areas and during transition times throughout the school day. Students are allowed to listen to music using the one in/one out
earbudpractice. Large “ear cans” or headphones will be prohibited. The one in/one out earbudpractice is designed for safety allowingthe student to still be able to hear directions from teachers or other staff members. At any point sound from an electronic device is heard, the student will be asked to lower the volume and may run the risk of the device being confiscated.
Students are restricted at all times within the building and on campus from using any recording feature to include the phone/device camera or video camera unless approved by a supervising teacher.
Teachers may allow students to use cell phones or other electronic devices in the classroom according to WFISD BYOD policy. Students who do not follow the teacher’s instructional plan for the day, i.e., have their cell phone or electronic device out without permission will have it confiscated by the teacher and handed to administration. If any device is confiscated and turned in to administration there will be a $15 fee associated with the return of the device. All devices may be returned at the end of the day upon payment.
Administrators may require students to put away cell phones or other electronic devices at any given time while on campus, including the hallways and common areas.
Student use of cell phone or other electronic devices is a privilege, not a right. Any student who violates the district’s cell phone and electronic device limitations may face restrictions and disciplinary consequences.
