My signature verifies a thorough explanation has been provided to me regarding the consequences of having a cell phone/digital device in the testing room.
Cell Phone/Digital Device in a Testing Setting – Students
The possession of a digital device (including but not limited to cell phones, MP3 players, cameras, or other telecommunication devices capable of capturing or relaying information) is strictly prohibited during the administration of a secure test.  School personnel will collect such devices before students can enter the testing room.  If a student is observed in possession of a digital device during the administration of a secure test, the device will be confiscated.  If a student is observed using a digital device during the administration of a secure test, testing for the student will cease, the device will be confiscated and is subject to search, the student will be dismissed from testing, and the student’s test will be invalidated. 
Additional disciplinary action may be taken by the LEA.
