Junior Senior High School
Campus Improvement team:
Our Campus Improvement Team consists of parents, teachers, community members, business members, and administrators. We meet periodically during the school year. The purpose of the Campus Improvement Team is to assist in the overall operation and direction of the campus. Members serve two year terms. If you are selected to serve, you will be expected to commit time to attend the meetings with the Campus Improvement Team. Understand that a “parent” is defined as “a person who is a parent of, or a person standing in parental relation to a student enrolled at this school.” Also understand that if you are selected to serve on a CIT, you may serve on
only one Campus Improvement Team at a time.
Individuals may contact the Special Programs office if interested in serving as a parent, community member, or business member. If you are interested in this important team, you may contact:

To All OISD Parents and Patrons - Report of Fire Arm
Today we received a report of a fire arm at the High School Campus. Three students reported a student that they observed flaunting what they believed to be a fire arm. The High School Administrators immediately notified OPD while simultaneously making contact with the student in question. The student was no longer in possession of the suspected fire arm. It had been placed into another student's back pack and ultimately in a trash can on campus. The item was located and turned out to be a non-fire arm, according to the Texas Penal Code, CO2 pellet pistols with no pellets or CO2 canister. OPD transported the student from the campus and will administer any and all legal actions which they deem appropriate. The district will follow the district code of conduct for such incidents as determined by the Texas Education Code. I am proud to say that three students followed the rule of "It is never the wrong time to do the right thing." They saw something and they said something! We do have great kids in OISD.

Dear OJSH Parents/Guardians,
Onalaska Jr/S High School is launching a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiative this semester. Students in grades 7-12, will be able to bring laptops, netbooks, tablets, or smartphones to use for educational purposes. Having ongoing access to technology will help your child develop greater independence, increase engagement, and develop skills required to thrive in the 21st Century.
Student devices will be used to access resources, complete assignments, and for personal organization. Educational activities may include researching information, producing documents, analyzing data, participating in surveys, producing videos, reading e-books, creating blogs, taking notes, scheduling events, etc.. The use of the device will be under the direct instruction of the teacher.
Safe and Secure
To maintain a safe and secure learning environment, a filtered Internet connection will be provided for students. They will not be permitted to use a personal broadband connection such as a 3G/4G phone network. As well, students will only be able to use their device under the direct instruction of their teacher. Any unauthorized/improper or inappropriate use can result in the device being confiscated and privileges being revoked and punishment imposed according to campus policy.
We look forward to the educational opportunities that BYOD will bring. Participation in this initiative is voluntary. Your child will not be left out if they do not have a device. Onalasksa Jr/Sr High will continue to provide access to school owned technology.
(Please see reverse side of this letter to read a copy of the new OJSH cell phone campus policy.)
Portions of the OJSH Student Handbook Revised for BOYD:
Telecommunication Devices, Including Mobile Telephones
For instructional purposes, the district permits students to possess personal mobile telephones; however, these devices must remain turned off during the instructional day (7:15am to 3:05pm), including during all testing, unless they are being used for approved instructional purposes under the direct instruction of the teacher. A student must have approval to possess other telecommunication devices such as netbooks, laptops, tablets, E-readers or other portable computers.
A student who uses a telecommunication device during the school day, when not under direct instruction of a teacher, will have the device confiscated. The use of mobile telephones or any device capable of capturing images is strictly prohibited in locker rooms or restroom areas while at school or at a school-related or school-sponsored event.
See chart below for related discipline fees and actions.
Electronic Device Offense Consequences
1st Offense $15 Fine Return to student
2nd Offense $15 Fine Parent must pick up
3rd Offense $15 Fine Hold for 1 week, parent must pick up
4th Offense $15 Fine Hold for 2 weeks, parent must pick up
5th Offense $15 Fine Hold for 1month, parent must pick up
Instructional Use of Personal Telecommunications and Other Electronic Devices
In some cases, students may find it beneficial or might be encouraged to use personal telecommunications or other personal electronic devices for instructional purposes while on campus. Students must obtain prior approval before using personal telecommunications or other personal electronic devices for instructional use. Students must also sign a user agreement that contains applicable rules for use. When students are not using the device for approved instructional purposes, under the direct instruction of the teacher, all devices must be turned off during the instructional day. Violations of the user agreement may result in withdrawal of privileges and other disciplinary action.
In addition, any student who engages in conduct that results in a breach of the district’s computer security will be disciplined in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct, and, in some cases, the consequences may rise to the level of expulsion.
