Electronic communication devices (ECD) include, but are not limited to, cell phones, smart watches, tablets, cameras, iPods, and MP3 players. A student who brings an ECD to school is responsible for ensuring that ECD does not disrupt class or any school function. The school is not responsible for any lost, stolen, or damaged personal electronic devices.
ECDs must be turned off and kept out of sight from bell to bell (7:15 AM-1:55 PM) during the school day. This means students are not allowed to talk, text, or record during passing period, class time, lunch time, and testing time except when being used for a valid instructional or other school related purpose as determined by the teacher or other district employee.
Students are required to follow SDUSD Network Use Guidelines and violations may include confiscation of the ECD and/or disciplinary action. These guidelines apply when going to and from school, to and from a school-related activity on school grounds, and at any school-related activity supervised by school personnel (Education Code Section 48901.5).
Inappropriate actions may include but is not limited to:
• bullying, harassing, or teasing of any students or school staff
• threats to students, school staff, or the school
• access or sharing of personal, school or individual electronic data
• photos that are sexually explicit, photos of illegal activities, or photos of unlawful drugs or drug paraphernalia.
• using an ECD’s camera and/or video functions on campus
• infringing on the privacy rights of another person (ECDs must be turned off and out of site in the bathrooms and locker rooms.)
Unauthorized use and violations will result in the confiscation of the ECD. ECD that are confiscated are to the Administrative Office for storage and returned at discretion of the principal. A refusal to turn in an ECD over to staff immediately when requested may result in disciplinary actions for defiance and/or disruption.
