Cellphones During School Day
The Fulton County School district prohibits the use of personal communication devices (PCD) during the school day. This rule went into effect at the beginning of the 2022-23 school year. We have noticed more students bringing devices to school after the break. Please see the language of the rule below:
18f.II Prohibited Use of Personal Communication Devices (PCD) During School Day Possession of Personal Communication Devices (PCD) (e.g., cell phones, tablets, recording devices) by a student at school during school hours is a privilege that will be forfeited if a student fails to abide by the Student Code of Conduct.
***Multiple and/or prior infractions could lead to increased consequences***
Behaviors that implicate Title IX regulations (as implemented) will be managed as discussed in www.fultonschools.org/titleix. The use of PCDs during the school day is not allowed in grades Pre-K through 5. In grades 6 through 12, the use of PCDs is not allowed during instructional time and will only be allowed when explicitly instructed to do so by a teacher or other school staff member. ***Please Note: If a student violates this rule which leads to the student’s personal communication device being confiscated by school personnel, it will only be released to the parent or guardian who must come to the school to personally retrieve the device.
