Personal Technology at McMurray.
Technology and cell phones are a valuable resource, however, these items can be disruptive to the school learning environment. McMurray allows students to use privately owned electronic devices to access the VISD wireless network. Connecng to the VISD wireless network with personal devices is a privilege, not a right, and it is not a requirement for students. Permission to bring and use privately owned devices is contingent upon adherence to VISD Technology Contract, which must be signed by student and parent and returned to the school.
If a student chooses to bring personal technology to school, they must be turned off (not on vibrate) and stored out of sight. Electronic devices may be used outside the building and in the MPR/commons before and after school, break and lunch. Sound needs to be off when inside the building. Use of technology in the hallways and classrooms is not allowed. This includes headphones and earbuds as well. Students who choose to use electronic devices during these approved times are responsible for stowing them out of sight as they walk through the building.
Inappropriate use of electronic devices will result in the following consequences:
● First Offense: Electronic device is held in the office until the end of the day, when the student can claim it.
● Second Offense: Electronic device is held in the office until the end of the day and can be claimed by a parent at his or her convenience.
● Third Offense: Electronic device is held in the office until the end of the day and can be claimed by a parent following a check in with administration.
● Repeated Offenses: may result in a contract or plan for the use of the personal devices
If parents need to contact their child during the school day they may do so via the front office. See “Contacting your Child during the Day” for more information.
