Possession and Use of Personal Telecommunication Devices
For safety purposes, the district permits students to possess personal mobile telephones and other computing devices; however, these devices must remain turned off and in backpacks once on campus.
The use of mobile telephones or any device capable of capturing images is strictly prohibited in restroom areas while at school or at a school-related or school-sponsored event.
If a student uses a telecommunications device during the school day, the device will be confiscated. The parent may pick up the confiscated telecommunications device from the Wortham Oaks administration for a fee of $15
Confiscated telecommunications devices that are not retrieved by the student or the student’s parents will be disposed of at the end of the school year.
Possession and Use of Other Personal Electronic Devices
Except as described below, students are not permitted to possess or use personal electronic devices such as MP3 players, video or audio recorders, DVD players, cameras, games, e-readers, or other electronic devices at school. Without such permission, teachers will collect the items and give them to the Wortham Oaks office. Parents will be contacted to pick up the items.
