HSW CELL PHONE POLICY FINAL/ REGENTS EXAMINATIONS

All students are prohibited from bringing cell phones and certain other electronic devices, as
defined in the script below, into a classroom or other location where a State exam is being
administered. Test proctors, test monitors, and school officials shall retain the right to collect and
hold any prohibited electronic devices prior to the start of the test administration. Admission to
the test shall be denied to any student who is in possession of a cell phone or other prohibited
electronic device and refuses to relinquish it.

At the beginning of each test administration, proctors will read the italicized
statement below to all students taking secondary-level State exams:

You cannot have any communications device, including a cell phone,
with you during this exam or during any breaks (such as a restroom
visit). Such devices include, but are not limited to:

• Cell phones
• Blackberry devices and other PDAs
• iPods and MP3 players
• iPads, tablets, and other eReaders
• Laptops, notebooks, or any other personal computing devices
• Cameras or other photographic equipment
• Headphones, headsets, or in-ear headphones such as earbuds, a
• Any other device capable of recording audio, photographic or
video content, or capable of viewing or playing back such content

If you brought any of these items to the building today, you must call a
parent/guardian to come to school to pick up the device. You may no
longer keep your cell phone or any of these items with you, or near
you, including in your pockets, backpack, desk, etc. If you keep a cell
phone or any of these items with you, your exam will be invalidated
and you will get no score. Is there anyone who needs to exit the testing
location to place a call now? [Proctor: repeat the list of devices.] This
is your last opportunity to do so before the test begins.
