Important Information

Cell Phone Policy

Below is an outline of MVU’s process for addressing cell phone-related issues that may arise. The administration reserves the right to make adjustments and accommodations for specific students at the discretion of school officials. An example of an accommodation that could be made would include students who use their device to manage a medical issue such as diabetes. Questions on this process and subsequent decisions can be directed to any member of the school’s administrative team. 

 

If a student is found to be in possession or use of a cell phone, the phone will be confiscated, placed in a labeled envelope, and delivered to the office. 

 

The consequences will be as follows: 

1st offense: 

  • Cell phone held in office until the end of the day. 

  • Student will sign for the cell phone at the end of the day in the office. 

 

2nd offense: 

  • Cell phone held in office until the end of the day. 

  • A parent or guardian will need to sign for the cell phone at the end of the day in the office. 

 

3rd offense:

  • A parent or guardian will sign for the cell phone after a meeting with the student and a school administrator. The student may  be sent home for the remainder of that day and then be subject to a one (1) day in-school suspension during their next school day.

 

A student that refuses to comply with a request to surrender their cell phone by any member of the faculty or staff and/or an administrator, will be considered insubordinate. Rules governing insubordination will apply as outlined in the student handbook, which may result in immediate out-of-school suspension.
