We recognize that many students often use social media networks, cell phones and other devices to communicate with family and friends. These are helpful communication tools; however, these tools also present inherent risks to the safety and well-being of students if the technology is used inappropriately. If students choose to use social media networks, cell phones, iPods, laptops, tablets or other related technology equipment, they must abide by the school's Code of Conduct and School District 23's policy for Student Use of Electronic and Social Media Communication (Policy 486). If at any point, students' use of technology interferes with or distracts from the learning of others, schools may intervene and issue consequences in relation to the outlined school code of conduct and district policy. Schools will also not be held responsible for any misplaced, lost, stolen, or broken items brought to school by students.
