Student Policy

The possession of a digital device (including but not limited to cell phones, MP3 players, cameras, or other telecommunication devices capable of capturing or relaying information) is strictly prohibited during the administration of a secure test. If a student is observed in possession of a digital device during the administration of a secure test, the device will be confiscated.

If a student is observed using a digital device during the administration of a secure test, testing for the student will cease, the device will be confiscated and is subject to search, the student will be dismissed form testing, and the student's test will be invalidated.

Local education agency (LEA) personnel will make all student, parents, and /or guardians aware of the prohibition through inclusion of the policy in the Student Code of Conduct Handbook and other regularly used modes of communication.
