Personal Technology Policy

In regards to language used in this policy, the phrase, “Personal Technology” includes, but is not limited to, cell phones, smart phones, smart watches, ipads, gaming devices, tablets, personal computers/chromebooks, headphones, and chargers.


Personal technology can be used as an excellent instructional tool. However, they can also be a distraction to students during the school day. It is important that you understand the rules to avoid consequences or the eventual loss of personal technology. Together, we can help make the learning day disturbance-free by limiting the use of these devices and/or accessories and following the VPP campus policy. 


During the school day, personal technology should be put away out of sight and turned off during all classes without express permission from the teacher during instructional time and/or instruction. Personal technology may only be used in the cafe during breakfast/lunch, in the hallways during a passing period, and during off periods. They should not be used to cause any disruption in the educational process or for unethical or illegal purposes. Prohibited uses include, but are not limited to:

Vista Peak Preparatory and its employees will not be responsible or liable for the theft, loss, data loss, damage, destruction, misuse or vandalism of any student’s personal electronics brought onto district/school property. 


If a student is found to be in violation of this policy, the personal technology will be confiscated by school personnel.
