Updated Cell Phone Policy


In an effort to promote appropriate use of technology while keeping the integrity of program instruction intact, the MASC cell phone policy will be amended to allow delegates to use their phones during designated times throughout the day. 

Delegates are permitted to use cell phones during break, lunch and during passing periods.  Delegates may not use their phones during instruction or meeting time. This means cell phones must be turned off or placed on silent and put away before entering the council room.  Also, phones may not be used outside of the council room during instruction time. For example, leaving for the restroom or any other location outside of the council room or other structured activity. We also ask that conversations on the phone in your dorm room be kept to a minimum. It is not fair or considerate to the roommate.

Counselors may permit use of cell phones for activities related to curriculum and will notify students when this type of use is authorized.


When a device is in use in the classroom, students WILL NOT:


  • Answer an incoming SMS (text) message or phone call
  • Be on any social media site (Facebook, Twitter, etc...)
  • Access or play any game or access any entertainment site on their device
  • Access or use any application (app) on their device unless expressly instructed to by the counselor
  • Take any picture or video that the counselor has not expressly asked you to take


Due to the evolving nature of emerging technologies, additional rules and regulations may be added by program administrators throughout the year.



MASC staff will ask you to put your phone away once.  After a warning, MASC administrators will enforce the behavior policy accordingly.
