NE logoCell Phones, Cameras, Electronic, and Other Telephonic Devices

Students may not possess or use cell phones or other telephonic devices in school. Further, two-way radios, scanners, video cameras and electronic games are not permitted in school. Students who are found to be in possession of any of these devices or are caught using any of these devices during class time or during any testing period, including standardized tests will have the item confiscated. Students possessing cell phones during standardized testing may face consequences from the school, district, and from the State of Pennsylvania.

The confiscated item will be turned over to the principal or his/her designee. The principal/designee shall maintain a record identifying the item confiscated and the student from whom it was taken. All confiscated items will be maintained in a secure (locked) manner.

All confiscated items will be returned on the designated day at the end of each academic quarter.

Items confiscated a second time will not be returned until the end of the school year. A parent may be required to come in for any such confiscated item(s). Items, which are not claimed within a school year, or are confiscated in relation to another offense or as a result of a subsequent violation of this policy, will not be returned. The principal may donate such items to charity, destroy them or sell them, using the proceeds for the school.
