Question:
What is the cell phone/ electronics policy?

Answer:The Arlington ISD plans to allow students to use personally-owned mobile devices such as laptops, netbooks, tablets, iPads, iPod Touches, smartphones and eReaders, during the school day for educational purposes. Implementation of the 2009 Bond program was a great help in preparing for BYOT. Because of the bond, students and teachers are much more aware of how mobile technology devices can improve teaching and learning, and a three-year project has improved wireless connectivity at each school.

Students may possess such devices; however,  the use of these devices in the classroom is at the discretion of the individual teacher.

Technology use is a privilege, not a right.
