The Muscogee County School Board will meet on Monday, July 20 at 6:30 p.m. in the board room of the old Bradley Library on Bradley Drive.
During the meeting, the board will vote on new cell phone rules for students for the upcoming school year.
Under the proposed policy, students caught using a cell phone in school would have their phone held by the principal for three school days. The student’s parent would be able to pick up the phone at the close of the third school day.
After a student’s second offense, the phone would be held five school days.
After a student’s third offense, the student would be assigned in-school suspension for two days and a parent would be allowed to pick up the phone after 10 school days. A mandatory parent conference would also be held.
After a student’s fourth offense, the student would be suspended out of school for two days for each offense and the parent would be able to pick up the phone at the end of the school day.
If the student’s parent says the phone cannot be held, the student can accept two days of out-of-school suspension as punishment instead.
All board meetings are open to the public.
