Acceptable Use of Cell Phones

 

    The NCUJHS Leadership Team has recently updated guidelines for acceptable use of cell phones/wifi- accessible devices.  The plan will be in effect through the end of the

2017-18 school year, at which time we will review and revise the final draft for the upcoming year.  It is our hope that our new plan will provide students and staff an opportunity to practice responsible use of these technologies in learning and professional environments.  At our Open House on March 16th, an interactive session on our new guidelines offered parents, students and staff opportunity to consider the benefits and concerns related to using digital technology.  The presentation was based on an overview of research into the effects of social media and technology on physical, social, emotional and intellectual development.  We have included links to the articles referenced in the presentation, and we also encourage your continued attention to and conversation around this very important, ongoing topic of interest.  Feel free to contact the school with any questions or comments.
