A. In accordance with the code of conduct 4410R – If a cell phone is used, activated or displayed at an unauthorized time, the student may be subject to disciplinary measures pursuant to the Code of Conduct. If the building administrator confiscates a student’s cell phone, it must be turned off and stored in the principal’s office. Due to the sensitive nature of the contents of the phone, this policy should only allow for searches in limited circumstances when reasonable suspicion to believe that a serious and/or potentially dangerous violation of the law or a school rule has occurred and reason to believe that evidence of the violation will be found in the contents of the phone. Also, please refer to Policy 7330 for further information
