For JHI....what is your school/classroom policy on cell phones? We have a policy but it’s not really followed so each teacher does their own thing. It’s a nightmare!

No cell phones. I don’t want to see them or hear them. Our campus policy is that they are to be in their bags or lockers. If they can be seen we can write them up. But like you said that isn’t followed across campus. We’re essentially 1 to 1 so I don’t see a need

School policy is no cell phones. However, I have high needs students with lot of behavioral challenges, and when paras take them out of the room to lunch, Specialists, their gen ed "buddy classes", etc., they often need to communicate with me or each other, so we have special permission to use our phones for this purpose. It's not ideal though, because then some of my paras use their phone for personal use. It's a slippery slope. I'm hoping the district coughs up the money for us to get good quality walkie talkies next year.

I No cell phones during school hours. And if we see one, we take it to the office. The office keeps records and chronic offenders get detentions and even Saturday School if it happens too much.

We have a NO CELL PHONE policy. If we see or hear one, we take it or they’re suspended. It’s the best thing ever! I don’t understand why ALL schools don’t!

Warner High School. It’s a schoolwide policy. They do have 1-1 devices so email is appropriate in emergency situations. We use those for things like Kahoot or Quizlet. There’s zero reason why they should need a cell phone.

I can honestly say that working from home these last few years has been the best thing that’s happened to my career as a producer. I never realized how distracting being in an office was. Now, I actually can focus on bidding, scheduling, reviewing contracts, and all of the stressful parts of production WITHOUT having to factor in code switching and a commute. I left my agency producer role for a fully remote producing role and I’m just….thrilled. Anyone else refuse to go back to office? 😩
