What is the student phone/device policy?
- Our goal is to encourage all students to actively engage with their peers and with the program activities. In order to ensure a distraction free environment, the following policy is in place:
- Phones/devices are not to be used during activity/class time.
- If used, students receive a warning to put the device away.
- If the warning is not recognized, the device is collected, kept by the program director, and is returned at the end of the day.
- If the device is used again on subsequent days, no warnings are issued. Instead, the device is immediately collected and will be collected for all future days that the student attends Summer @ Sterne.
