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.
Safe and Secure
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.
The 2015-16 school year has arrived!
