Alameda High School Electronic Device Policy 2012-13
Cell phones are to be powered off during class time and out of view (this includes the hallways and bathrooms). They cannot be used on campus when class is in session. Classroom phones are for the use by faculty only in case of emergency. Cell phones may be used ONLY during times when classes are not in session. Family members needing to contact students during class time should contact the office which in turn will get in touch with the student. Any cell phones or electronic devices seen during class time will be confiscated.
Electronic devices are prohibited in Alameda High School classrooms and their use is prohibited on campus during class time. These include but are not exclusive to Cell Phones, CD Players, MP3 Players, Electronic Games, Laser Pointers, Two Way Radios, Pagers, etc.
1st Offense – teacher (or staff member) will warn the student, ask them to power it off and put it away. Teacher will discipline the student if necessary and encourage good choices and behavior. The number one goal is to have the student understand the policy.
2nd Offense – teacher will confiscate the device and bring it to the Dean’s office. The student may pick up the device at the end of the school day. One-hour detention may be assigned.
3rd Offense – teacher will confiscate the device and bring it to the Dean's office. Dean will contact the parent and they will have to come pick up the device. Two one-hour detentions may be assigned.
Additional infractions – may include Wednesday school, loss of extracurricular activities and other privileges.
If a student brings these items for use during non-class time, they must be powered off and out of site during class time. Because these items are prohibited, AHS will not investigate and assumes no responsibility for loss/theft/or damages. We strongly advise and recommend that cell phones and all other electronic devices not be brought to school due to the increased problems caused by them, which include disruptions, loss, theft, and damage. Any cell phones or other electronic devices seen during class time will be confiscated.
