Away for the Day - School Board 3_12_2020.pptx
Summary: Beginning in 2019-20, after various pilots in several middle schools, ACPS middle schools adopted an "Away for the Day" cell phone practice. Following a national trend, ACPS middle school principals developed and implemented a cell phone practice that prompts students and staff to have their cell phones put out of sight during the school day. Principals will share their current practice and what they have learned over the course of the year to date.
