arrow Previous bar Next arrow


The Board of Trustees recognizes the importance of providing adequate communication among district staff, parents/guardians, schools and suppliers of support materials.

District/Site Funded Cell Phones (Nextel)

School district cellular phones may be provided for official district business use. The district shall limit provision of cellular phones to individuals who, in the conduct of the district business, must regularly and frequently, while away from a desk phone, need communication with schools, staff or other agencies as a business necessity, or who have emergency and urgent response duties. The Board has established that certain staff members, on a limited basis, in the department of information technology, maintenance, food services and transportation automatically qualify for such phones.

Cellular phone users are responsible for reviewing their cell phone invoices and reimbursing the district for all charges associated with personal calls.

Cellular Phone Stipends

The Board has authorized the Superintendent or his/her designee to establish a $40 cellular phone stipend for designated district/site management personnel.

Exceptions to the designated employees must complete applications for such phones annually and will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
