The Board is aware that WCDs are used by students and parents to communicate with each other, however the use of WCDs on school grounds must be appropriately regulated to protect students, staff, and the learning environment.  To help promote the in-person academic and social engagement of our students while at school and at school-related activities, the District has revised expectations regarding the use of WCDs by students for the upcoming school year as follows: 

Grades Pre-K through 8:  Students who bring WCDs to school must ensure that they remain on silent mode and completely out of view for the entire school day except for when expressly authorized by the classroom teacher for a specific instructional activity. Classroom teachers may also provide, and students may utilize, a cell phone storage area in their classroom. These expectations also apply to extracurricular and co-curricular activities that occur before or after the school day.  

Grades 9 through 12:  Students who bring WCDs to school must ensure that they remain on silent mode and completely out of view for the entire school day except for the student’s lunch period, or as expressly authorized by the classroom teacher for a specific instructional activity. Classroom teachers may also provide, and students may utilize, a cell phone storage area in their classroom. These expectations also apply to extra-curricular and co-curricular activities that occur before or after the school day.  

*With the approval of their respective Assistant Superintendent and based on the specific facts and circumstances at their school, a school principal may impose more restrictive conditions at their school. 

F.S. 1006.07 (f) 

Full details of the Rules for Dress and Appearance and the Wireless Communication Device (WCD) policy can be found in those specific sections of the 2024-2025 Student Code of Conduct available now on the 草榴社区app County 草榴社区apps website and by clicking on the link provided.

Parents play a crucial role in promoting safety and the PBIS model on our school campuses by supporting the district’s SCOC.
