ok, so at school today, I got caught having my iPod Touch out during lunch. Because this was a second time, I'm getting 3 days in school suspension. Now, according to my grade principle, an iPod is a portable communication device(Term in School Policies). And if you are caught having it out during school hours, you will get iss. Then, i was like bull and i wanted to talk about it to the head principle and do something about it. Basically, i have the weekend to plan what i'm going to say to him that will bypass the rule. Any help? Here is the policy Beepers/Pagers/Portable Communication Devices Laser Pointers/Cameras Students in grades 6-12 may possess and use beepers, pagers, portable communication devices at school only in accordance with the conditions set below: Beepers/pagers/portable communication devices may not be used or be visible on school premises during regular school hours, and may not be used during regular school hours as a camera. Regular school hours shall be defined (for purposes of the policy only) as the time beginning five minutes before the initial bell (not the tardy bell) rings for first hour or students having zero hour and ending five minutes after the last period dismissal bell. Use, display or activation of these items at times other than described will result in up to three days in-school suspension. If such items are used in such a way as to substantially disrupt the school environment, the student may be suspended for up to ten (10) school days out-of-school, with a possible recommendation for a suspension up to 180 school days or expulsion. Laser pointers are allowed only with specific permission from the teacher and administrator for class demonstration purposes. Use and/or possession without specific permission as described will result in up to three days in-school suspension. Students who are authorized by school officials to use a camera in class would be exempt from the punishment. Students in Early Childhood and/or Pre-school programs through grade 5 are not permitted to possess or use beeper/pagers/portable communication devices/ laser pointers on school property or at school related activities away from District premises during regular school hours as defined above.
