New Electronic Device Policy
Research is showing that student achievement and feelings of being safe while at school are reduced when schools allow students to freely access their personal electronic devices and social media during instructional time. In response to this, Hillside High School students will not be permitted to use personal electronic devices in the school during instructional time. If a student is using their personal electronic device in the school during any scheduled class times, they will be taken from the student and handed in to the office. The student will be allowed to pick up the personal electronic device at the end of the day. If a second offense occurs, parents will be required to pick up the phone and a meeting will be held with school administration, the student and parent.
