Wireless Electronic Device Policy

The Colleton County School Board of Trustees voted to adopt Temporary Policy JICJ (Student Possession/Use of Wireless Electronic Devices) during their regular December 14 board meeting.

This temporary policy is effective immediately with enforcement of consequences for violations beginning January 4, 2022. This time is to give parents and students the opportunity to review and prepare for its implementation. 

This policy establishes rules for when and how students can use wireless electronic devices such as, but not limited to, cell phones, tablets and smart watches. The policy was created to insure these electronic devices do not disrupt the important work occurring in our classrooms and to help create a safe learning environment for our students and staff.

The procedures for appropriate use of wireless electronic devices are summarized below:

Wireless electronic devices may be only used before school and after school. Once a student enters the building and at all times while the student is in the building wireless electronic devices must be turned off and put away.

Wireless electronic devices should always remain off during class, class changes, recess, lunch, and activities, and should not be visible at any time. Under no circumstances should noise or images from these devices disturb the learning of others.

Students will not use wireless electronic devices to capture video, audio, or photos of other people at school. The posting of those photographs, audio, and/or video will result in disciplinary consequences.
