As explained in the Electronic Devices Parent Letter, cell phones and other communication devices will not be allowed during the test administration. The following actions will be taken if a student is found in possession of a cell phone or communication device during testing:
A "DO NOT SCORE" label will be applied to his/her answer booklet and the student will either have to retake the test from the beginning or not receive a score.
The phone or communication device will be confiscated until such time that you come to the school.
In your presence, the cell phone or other device will be viewed to ensure that it contains no information or material about the assessment.
Students that violate the ban on cell phones and other electronic devices will be disciplined, according to the guidelines outlined in the BAHS Student Handbook that can be viewed by clicking this link, depending on whether the test material was compromised.
If items on an assessment are compromised, they will have to be replaced. Parents and students may be responsible for the cost of replacing the items.
Please review the above policies carefully and discuss them with your student. As always, we expect your full cooperation in this important matter.
If you have questions on any of the included documents or cell phone policy, please contact the high school guidance office.
Thank you very much.
Kellie Stout, Principal
