BOARD Yondr Update 081122.pptx

  1. 1. LAUNCH OF NEW CELL PHONE PROCEDURES WITH YONDR School Board Presentation August 11, 2022
  2. 2. WHY WE TOOK A NEW APPROACH • During fall 2021, we had several serious concerns with weapons and fights and some of these were connected with cell phones being used to set up events and/or record them • In December 2021, we held a town hall to explore options to address the concerns and one of those was to significantly limit cell phone use • Since before the pandemic, but much more after students began returning to school after the school closures, cell phones have been a significant distraction for both learning and socialization • Enforcement of cell phone limits in classrooms was very difficult to maintain
  3. 3. WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE AS STUDENTS ENTER AND EXIT
  4. 4. SOME QUICK DATA ON HOW ITS GOING • Over 95% of students at both schools are following the new phone rules as they enter each day • On an average day, about 5-10% of students come to school without their pouches and their phones remain in the office until the end of the day • About 10 or less pouches at each school are coming in damaged on a typical day thus far • In classrooms, there is more focus on instruction and less distraction • Overall, there has been less conflict between students
  5. 5. AND HERE’S SOME OF WHAT WE ARE HEARING Student - “Have y’all noticed how much more we are taking to one another during down time? This didn’t happen last year, we were all on our phones.” Teacher - “It’s so nice to see their faces this year, and I don’t mean because they’re not wearing masks.” Teacher - “They are so much more engaged since they’re not in their phones.” Student- “I’m learning so much more this year, but don’t you dare tell my friends I said that.” (Then giggled and hugged me) Teacher-“Last week was the best first week of school I think I’ve ever had.”
