Students at Carver Center form a strong community.  There are many opportunities outside the classroom for students to interact.

However, regarding cell phone usage:

Cell phones should remain off and away during instructional time, unless explicitly directed by the teacher to be utilized in instruction.  Not adhering to this policy will result in logical consequences, as outlined in the Student Handbook Addendum and the BCPS Student Handbook.

When there is a classroom incident, to include cell phone usage, the policy is as follows:

Occasion #1    Teacher warning, conference with student

Occasion #2    Teacher calls parent

Occasion #3    Teacher gives detention, and notifies parent

Occasion #4    Teacher notifies grade-level administrator; appropriate action taken

Occasion #5    Office detention assigned

Occasion #6    Required parent conference held with administrator

Occasion #7    Student Support Team held
