Clear Creek Intermediate - 2020-2021 Cell Phone Policy

Cell phone use during the instructional day often makes it difficult for students to maintain their focus on instruction and learning. Students at CCI may have their cell phones with them during the day, with the following guidelines:

  • Cell phones, earbuds, AirPods, headphones and any other personal technology device may not be visible during the school day. A morning announcement will be made each day to remind students to turn off their devices.
  • Cell phones aren’t allowed during breakfast, during class, during class change, during lunch or at any time during the school day.
  • Students may not have earbuds or AirPods in their ears or hanging from their neck in the hallway. Headphones may not be worn on the head, around the shoulders or anywhere on the student in the hallway. These items may be used in the classroom with the teacher’s permission.
  • Personal devices, including, but not limited to cell phones, earbuds, AirPods, and headphones, must be placed in the student’s backpack, string bag or purse. Personal devices may not be carried in a pocket or in any other clothing area.
  • Students may ask permission to use the school phone in the Student Center if they need to speak with a parent or guardian.
  • A parent or guardian may call the Front Desk if they need to get in touch with their child. The Front Office will deliver the message or have the student call home.
  • If an evacuation is called, students may take their cell phones with them to the new location. In accordance with CCISD safety procedures, students are prohibited from using all telecommunication devices in an emergency unless authorized by a teacher or staff member.
  • If cell phones and other personal technology devices are visible during the school day, they will be picked up by a staff member and brought to the Student Center.

    -1st Offense - The device will be confiscated, and the parent or guardian will be contacted. The phone or other personal technology will be returned to the student at the end of the day.

    -2nd Offense- The device will be confiscated. A parent or guardian may pick up the device from the Student Center at the end of the school day.

    -3rd Offense or More- The device will be confiscated. There is a $15.00 fee for the 3rd and additional offenses. (See Student Handbook, 2020-2021.) The parent/guardian may pick up the phone and pay the fee at the end of the school day.

  • If a student refuses to give his/her cell phone or technology device to a teacher or staff member the student will receive ISS.
  • Students will need to bring their charged laptop to school each day for instructional purposes.
