New RCSD Mobile Device Policy

On May 9, 2024, the RCSD Board of Education updated its Mobile Device Policy. The new policy outlines students are not allowed to use their personal mobile devices (including phones, personal tablets, bluetooth headphones (such as AirPods), and smartwatches) once they have entered campus for the instructional day and cannot resume their use until after the last period of the day. Devices must be turned off and stored away for the duration of the school day. This change aims to minimize distractions and enhance student focus and learning outcomes.
