Discipline - Personal Mobile Computing


While we are excited to teach our students through advanced technologies. However, the items used must be cared for and used within appropriate district guidelines.

Minor Offenses

Minor offenses to the personal mobile computing guidelines may include:

  • Illegal installation or transmission of copyrighted materials
  • Unauthorized use of Internet or computer games
  • Downloading inappropriate applications
  • Giving out personal information, for any reason, over the Internet

The district can use any of the following disciplinary consequences, if applicable, when addressing minor offenses, while taking into consideration the nature of the incident and the student’s prior technology offenses:

  • Student Conference
  • Lunch Detention
  • Morning School
  • After-School Detention
  • In-School Suspension (ISS)
  • Saturday School
  • Out-of-School Suspension (OSS)

Technology discipline offenses may also result in restricted use of the personal mobile computing device. The following system outlines such a process. Minor offenses will be handled on a points system. Each minor offense equals 5 points. Points and consequences are outlined below:

  • 10 points = conference with parent
  • 15 points = 1 week (5 school days) of checking the personal mobile computing device in and out at the help desk and parent conference
  • 20 points = 2 weeks (10 school days) of checking personal mobile computing device in and out at the help desk and parent conference
  • 25 points = 3 weeks (15 school days) of checking the personal mobile computing device in and out at the help desk and parent conference

Major Offenses

When a student grossly misuses a personal mobile computing device, it is considered a major offense. Those offenses can include, but are not limited to:

  • Bypassing the Lexington County School District One Web filter
  • Action violating existing board policy or public law
  • Deleting district system applications and changing personal mobile computing device settings (exceptions include personal settings such as font size, brightness, etc.)
  • Sending, transmitting, accessing, uploading, downloading, or distributing offensive, profane, threatening, pornographic, obscene, or sexually explicit materials
  • Use of chat rooms or sites selling term papers, book reports, and other forms of student work
  • Spamming (disruptive email, messages including iMessages)
  • Gaining access to another student’s accounts, files, and/or data
  • Use of the school’s Internet or email accounts for financial gain, commercial gain, or any illegal activity
  • Vandalism (any malicious attempt to harm or destroy the device)
  • Transmission or access of obscene, offensive, or threatening materials or materials intended to harass or demean

Major offenses may be addressed as follows:

  • First Offense — 1–3 days OSS and intervention session
  • Second Offense — 3 days OSS and intervention session
  • Third Offense — Recommendation for expulsion and appropriate law enforcement intervention, if applicable

The administration reserves the right to handle any of the above actions or any other action determined to be a misuse of technology in the manner they feel is the most appropriate for all concerned. For additional information on acceptable use of technology, please refer to the Lexington County School District One Acceptable Use Policy.
