Britton Deerfield School District
Administrative Guidelines


From time-to-time, staff members may wish to bring personal property to school either for reasons associated with their work responsibilities or for use during off-duty time. This practice is authorized provided it is understood that the District will not be responsible for any loss, damage, or misuse of such property.

The District will not allow staff members, however, to possess electronic pagers, cellular telephones, or other forms of personal (nondistrict-assigned) communication devices during their work time, since any use will tend to disrupt the educational process. In the case of an emergency, the caller should contact the school office which will immediately notify the staff member. Exemptions may be made by the principal in cases where the health and/or safety of the staff member would be jeopardized.

If the staff member needs to make personal calls during his/her off-duty time, s/he may use a District telephone in accordance with AG 7530 - Personal Use of District Equipment and Facilities.

Staff members may, however, keep cellular telephones and other electronic communication devices in their automobiles when parked on District property.
