Cell Phone/Electronic Device Policy

OCPS Student Cell Phone Policy Information

At 9:30, when the morning bell rings, all cell phones and electronic devices/support items (earbuds, earpods, headphones, tablets, gaming systems, smart devices; electronics other than a school issued laptop) should be turned off and placed in a student backpack or purse; out of sight (not in their pockets).

These items should be kept put away during transition from class to class, during class times, and during lunch.

  • Confiscation (Item returned at the end of the day)
  • Detention
  • Positive Alternative to School Suspension (PASS)
  • Out-of-School Suspension (OSS)
