  • Students can go through either teachers or media specialist to print to the color printer

7. AUP Focus
8. Mobile Devices in the media center
  • No talking on devices unless a teacher has indicated they are doing a project that requires to students to use their cell phone to record a podcast or audio response.
  • No violations of other school policies while using phones (for example:)
    • Profanity/Inappropriate Language
    • Bullying and Harassment
