ELECTRONIC DEVICES:

Electronic devices are valuable and sometimes necessary tools. Such devices include: cellular/camera/video phones, CD recorders and players and others. It is strongly recommended that students keep their electronic devices at home and not bring them to school. However, if students decide to carry an electronic device, the device should be turned OFF and kept out of sight throughout the school day. Students who possess electronic devices shall assume responsibility for their care. At no time shall Monroe-Woodbury Summer School be responsible for preventing theft, loss, or damage to communication devices brought onto school property.

The use of electronic devices by some students during class time has led to inappropriate communication during assessments which resulted in very serious academic penalties. Therefore, the use of such devices may be considered cheating, and a grade of zero may be issued for that day’s class activity (such as class work, quiz, or examination). Consequences for continued offenses may result in detention(s) or suspension(s). Students who use an electronic device or wear headphones while in the testing room (Regents, RCT, Proficiency, etc.) will have their test invalidated, no score will be calculated, and may lose their right to take any subsequent state exams.

AFFIRMATIVE ACTION:

Monroe-Woodbury Central School District is an equal opportunity/affirmative action institution. In accordance with Federal regulations, the New York State Human Rights Law and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Monroe-Woodbury does not discriminate on the basis of age, color, religion, creed, disability, marital status, veteran status, national origin, race/gender or sexual orientation in employment or in the educational programs and activities which it operates.
