Cell Phone Use (As per the 2016-17 Code of Conduct).
Teachers may allow or permit students to utilize cell phones or other electronic devices for educational purposes.
At all other times during the school day, cell phones must not be visible and be OFF (not merely on vibrate). Use of a cell phone for any other use is subject to disciplinary action per the code of conduct. Administrators may also prohibit the use of cell phones during extra- curricular events/activities if warranted.
Use of cell phones in any manner during the administration of state or local examinations will result in the student’s exam being immediately invalidated and no credit will be awarded for the work per New York State Education Department regulations.
The mission of the Wappingers Central School District is to empower all of our students with the competencies and confidence to challenge themselves, to pursue their passions, and to realize their potential while growing as responsible members of their community.
