Digital Media Device Policy

Dear Parents and Students,

Digital media devices include, but are not limited to: cell phones, pagers, computers, cameras, audio recorders, PDA’s, radios, CD/DVD players, USB thumb drives, video games; Game Boy, Nintendo DS, PSP, and other electronic or battery powered instruments/toys. These devices have increased in our community and in the schools. While digital media devices can be beneficial, their misuse may be disruptive to a positive learning environment and may infringe on the privacy and rights of others. In order to maximize a positive learning environment at Pioneer Elementary the following procedures concerning the use of DMD will apply:

  •      Use of any and all DMD is prohibited while on school grounds. They are not to be turned on or visible except with the consent and under the supervision of a teacher and/or administrator. If there is a medical or other need, individual exceptions will be considered by the teacher and/or administrator.

  •      The office phone is available for students and parents/guardians to contact each other in case of a school/personal issue or emergency, 801-452-4180.
  •      School personnel are not responsible for stolen, lost, or damaged DMD.

Infractions of this policy will result in the following consequences:

  • 1st      offense – Student will be reminded of school policy and instructed to comply.
  • 2nd      offense – DMD will be confiscated from the student. Students will be allowed to retrieve their property at the end of the school day. Parent will be notified.
  • 3rd      offense – DMD will be taken from the student and given to the administration and may be held in the office until a parent/guardian can pick it up. Parent will be notified.
  • 4th      offense – same as 2nd offense and depending on the nature of the infraction, students are also subject to disciplinary action “up to and including suspension from school” at the discretion of the school administration.

Additional provisions:

  • Misuse of DMD is additionally addressed in Weber School District Policy 8350 (Digital Media Devices) and Policy 5200 (Student Discipline Policy, Safe School Policy).
  • The teacher and the office personnel will do their best to guard and protect confiscated DMD, but are not responsible for loss, damage, or theft.
  • All devices that have not been picked up before June 5th will be donated.
  • Searches of DMD are only conducted if there is “reasonable suspicion” of prohibited content or to determine the owner.

Bussing Guidelines

Parents/Guardians,

Every year questions are asked regarding transportation.   Please note in the below policies that elementary students who live beyond 1.5 miles from the school are eligible to ride the bus.  Those students who qualify to ride a bus are to be dropped off and picked up at their regularly assigned bus stop.  Transporting students to daycare or non-related school activities is not allowed.

There must be a minimum of ten students for an established bus route.  If students qualify for a bus and the route does not meet this requirement, a bus will not be provided. In this situation, parents may be reimbursed for transporting their child/children.

We appreciate our Transportation Department and the fabulous work they do.  If you would like to review our busing policies and procedures, you can locate this on Weber School District’s website under Departments/Transportation.

Transporting students to such activities as parties, scouts, sleepovers, achievement days, piano lessons, daycare, etc. will not be allowed.  The school bus is only to be used for transporting eligible students to and from their registered residence.

POLICY 2340--BUS TRANSPORTATION, BUS STOPS, ROUTES AND DISTANCE REGULATIONS

3.             Bus Routes:  Bus routes will be established at the beginning of each school year in accordance with the regulations listed above and in accordance with sound economical and safety practices.  Buses will be routed in such a manner as to provide approved transportation services that are economically feasible, safe and practical. The minimum number of general education students required to establish a route is ten: the minimum number of students with disabilities is five.

POLICY 2340--BUS TRANSPORTATION, BUS STOPS, ROUTES AND DISTANCE REGULATIONS
