Cell Phone Permit is here to demonstrate healthy digital citizenship which promotes anti-addictive behavior, understanding of helpful vs harmful online practice, and adherence to high standards when conducting yourself on mobile devices.
This is a special 20-hour course designed for teenagers who have never had a cell phone yet, or are new to using cell phones. We provide specialized training on how to handle mobile devices, and avoid some of the pitfalls that many students fall into when using phones.
We also include a parent participation portion to learn how to effectively monitor your teenagers cell phone behaviors that help cultivate the right approaches to adulthood. We encourage parents to require their students to take this course before their first cell phone, so that they can be equipped to take on this very heavy responsibility of having a phone. If your student already has a phone, we recommend limiting or discontinuing their usage until they have completed this course, as they will become better prepared to handle this privilege.
At the end of this course, upon the completion and passing of our final exam measuring the competence and understanding of all our curriculum, a student will be awarded a Cell Phone Permit. They will be encouraged to maintain a student/parent covenant agreement for terms on which they will be allowed by their parents to have and use a cell phone under supervision.
