Cell phones/electronic devices and their use (rather misuse) have become a huge issue in all academic institutions. They hinder and distract the instructor and other students inside classrooms. In order to respect the important work of the classroom and the teaching and learning environment, this document is to clarify the cell phone electronic devices policy for our classroom. The policy is:

Cell phones/electronic devices can be used before the class and during break (if applicable).

Cell phones/electronic devices must be turned OFF or in vibrate mode when you enter the classroom, and stored away from your desk.

Once inside the classroom, cell phones and electronic devices must not be visible under any circumstances (for example, halfway hanging out of your purse or pocket or backpack) — even though they are OFF.

Absolutely no texting during class and you may not place the device on your lap.

First offense: if a cell phones/electronic device rings, or is visible anytime during class or you are caught using it (or texting) during class time, you will be reminded of the policy.

Second offense and beyond: The student will have to meet with me after class in my office for counseling
