New Legislation - Cell Phone Usage on Campuses

New Legislation - Cell Phone Usage on Campuses
Posted on 08/08/2023

WSHS Community:

A new law went into effect on July 1, 2023 and impacts how cell phones and other wireless communication devices are used on campuses. 

Florida Statute 1006.07(2)(f), says “a student may not use a wireless communications device during instructional time, except when expressly directed by a teacher solely for educational purposes. A teacher shall designate an area for wireless communications devices during instructional time.”

This means that cell phones must be silenced and placed as designated by the teacher while in class.

´╗┐This new update can also be found in our student code of conduct on page 21. The specific guidance for your child's school will be made available to you. We ask for your support in upholding not only the law, but in maintaining an environment conducive to academic learning.

Thank you!  

Mr. Gaffney, Principal; WSHS
