Cell Phone & Electronics Policy

It is the policy of the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) to prohibit the use of cellular phones or any electronic signaling device by students on campus during normal school hours. Students are permitted to possess cellular phones, pagers, or electronic signaling devices on campus provided that any such device shall remain turned off and stored in a locker, backpack, purse, pocket, or other place where it is not visible during normal school hours. Students are permitted to use cellular phones, pagers, or electronic signaling devices on campus before and after school or during school activities that occur outside of school hours. For District, state and national assessments, students are prohibited access to any unauthorized electronic devices at any time during the entire testing session. Students must comply anytime a request is made by school personnel to cease the use of a cellular telephone, pager or other signaling device even before or after school. Schools may adopt more stringent cellular phone policies through the School Site Council. Cell phone use on the school bus is for emergency purposes only; driver authorization is required. For more information you may call Transportation Services at (800) 522-8737. The District is not responsible for lost or stolen cellular telephones or other personal items of value such as cameras, electronic games, radios/MP3 players, computing devices, tablets, etc.
