Electronic Devices andTechnology Resources
When a student rides a Prosper ISD School bus, the phone can be used to contact parents or play activity games. NOTE: Respect of others - Students shall not record the voice or image of another without the prior consent of the individuals being recorded or in any way that disrupts the environment or invades the privacy of others. If a student’s cell phone becomes a distraction or a safety issue, the driver can ask the student to put it away or take it from the student until they arrive at their stop or campus.

Possession and Use of Personal TelecommunicationsDevices, Including Mobile Telephones
For safety purposes, the district permits students to possess personal mobile telephones; however, these devices must remain turned off during the instructional day, including during all testing, unless they are being used for approved instructional purposes. A student must have approval to possess other telecommunications devices such as netbooks, laptops, tablets, or other portable computers.
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.
If a student uses a telecommunications device without authorization during the school day, the device will be confiscated. The student/parent may pick up the confiscated telecommunications device from the campus teacher or principal.
Confiscated telecommunications devices that are not retrieved by the student or the student’s parents will be disposed of after the notice required by law. [See policy FNCE.]
In limited circumstances and in accordance with law, a student’s personal telecommunications device may be searched by authorized personnel. [See Searches on page 51 and policy FNF.]
Any disciplinary action will be in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct. The district is not responsible for damaged, lost, or stolen telecommunications devices.If you have any questions, please contact Prosper ISD’s Transportation office at 469-219-2065 or feel free to email us @ PISDbus@prosper-isd.net.
