• WHILE CELL PHONES MAY BE BROUGHT TO SCHOOL, THEY WILL NOT INHIBIT THE EDUCATION OF YOU OR OTHERS. THEREFORE, STUDENT CELL PHONE USE WILL ONLY OCCUR THROUGH THE PERMISSION OF MT STAFF. OTHERWISE, CELL PHONES WILL REMAIN UNSEEN AND UNHEARD.

    Cell Phone Procedures:

    Students may use cell phones only when in possession of a cell phone privilege card issued by the teacher (or) when approved by the teacher for academic purposes.

    • Level 2 (and above) students may be issued a cell phone privilege card by the teacher when appropriate during class time (example: independent work time).
      • Arguing, debating, or demanding a cell phone privilege card from the teacher or being impatient about receiving a card will result in a minimum of being placed on probationary level status; therefore temporarily losing level privileges (including cell phones) in all classes.
    • Referrals written for cell phone violations will result in natural consequences of not bringing the cell phone to school (or) having the cell phone confiscated for a determined amount of time.
    • ALL referrals leading to ALC will result in not bringing the cell phone to school (or) having the cell phone confiscated for the amount of time assigned to ALC.

    CELL PHONES ARE NOT PERMITTED IN ALC.

     

    Cell Phone Use Expectations (only when in possession of a cell phone privilege card issued by the teacher (or) when approved by the teacher for academic purposes):

    • One ear bud in, one ear bud out. All students must be able to hear directives from the teacher at all times. NO HEADPHONES (Beats, etc.)
    • Music volume must be managed so it is not heard by others.
    • Phones need to be placed in pocket, purse, etc. and not remain out or visible on desk.
    • Before leaving a classroom, ear buds should be taken out, music should be turned off, and cell phone should not be visible.

    CELL PHONES ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE OUT IN HALLS DURING PASSING TIME.

    • Any violation of these expectations will result in being placed on probationary level status; therefore temporarily losing level privileges (including cell phones) in all classes.
