Use in an Emergency
In the event of an emergency or evacuation process, the District prohibits a student from using a telecommunications device, including a device that records, transmits, or displays photographic images, because these devices may interfere with the administrative efforts to facilitate telecommunications regarding student safety. Any student who uses this type of device during this time shall be subject to disciplinary action.
