Student Technology Guides
Flagler Schools students are responsible for their devices at all times, whether on or off campus. The student assigned to the device is responsible for all use of the device. Devices left unattended will be secured by staff and may be taken to the Dean's office or the school's Technology office for retrieval. Disciplinary action may be taken by school administration for repeat offenders.
