Digital Media Device Policy

Plain City is committed to making sure that Digital Media Devices such as cell phones, music, and gaming devices, etc. do not interfere with our learning environment, safety procedures, or infringe on the privacy of others.  In order to do this, the following procedures will apply to the use of a DMD on school property during school hours:

  • Unless approved by the administrator, DMDs should not be seen, heard, or used from 8:35 a.m. to 3:15 p.m.   It is strongly recommended that these devices do not come to school at all.
  • Misuse of the DMD may result in the device being held by the principal.  Confiscated devices must be picked up at the school office by parents.
  • Three offenses in a year may lead to consequences including, but not limited to, behavior contracts, loss of privileges, and suspension.
  • The office phone is available for students to contact parents in case of a school issue or emergency.  Parents can also call the school to get messages to their children.
  • School personnel WILL NOT be held responsible for DMDs that are misplaced, lost, or stolen.
  • School administration or designee may search DMDs if there is a reasonable suspicion that the device contains evidence of a violation of school and/or district policy.
  • School district policies and State and Federal laws regarding DMDs will be enforced.
Thank you for your support as we work together to provide a productive and safe learning environment for ALL our students.
