  9. Electronic Devices New PED Policy Follow required steps. School/district determines student/staff discipline. Goal: to maintain test security

  10. Electronic Devices Legal Counsel “You are grounded in federal and state case law permitting school searches when (1) there is individualized suspicion that a student is breaking a law or school rule or (2) a safety concern that overrides the individual student’s expectation of privacy. State v. Gage R. 149 N.M. 14, 243 P.3d 453 (Ct. App. 2010). School officials would have individualized suspicion if a student brought a cell phone into the test arena, so long as the school announces clearly that bringing the electronic device into the testing arena constitutes a violation of this policy AND a violation of this policy is grounds for a search of the device.”

  11. Electronic Devices • Legal Counsel - Summary • Search Permitted if: • School has clearly stated • NO ELECTRONIC DEVICES DURING TESTING and • VIOLATION RESULTS IN CONFISCATION AND SEARCH OF DEVICE. • Student is caught with device during testing. • Case Law: • State v.
