Cell Phones: Students are only allowed to use their cell phones before school, during lunch, and after school. Students who use their communication devices during instructional time will be subjected to item confiscation and subsequent disciplinary actions, such as RPC and/or suspension. This is in accordance with CCSD Policy 5136:
I. The use by students of personal communication devices such as cell phones, pagers/beepers or other similar electronic communication devices is prohibited at all district school campuses during the instructional day. As long as use is not disruptive, students may use these devices during scheduled nutrition or lunch periods and while on district buses. During the instructional day, students may only use these devices with the approval of the teacher or principal. If a nuisance item is confiscated and turned into the deans’ office, a parent or guardian must pick it up; it will not be given back to the student.
A. These devices must remain off, not merely silenced, during instructional time including passing periods. (Phones will be confiscated during this time.)
B. Students who violate this policy will be disciplined as provided for in the Clark County District’s Behavior guidelines for Secondary Students
