Student Device Policy:

Students shall not possess any digital device within the testing room when participating in ACAP testing. The possession of a digital device by students participating in ACAP testing is strictly prohibited during the administration of a test. The ONLY exception to this policy is for students who have been pre-approved by the Building Test Coordinator or the Principal to have a digital device that is necessary for the health and/or well­ being of the student.

If students are in possession of a digital device that is within their reach during the administration of an ACAP test, the device will be confiscated and, if the appropriate administrator determines that there is reasonable suspicion that the device was used to capture, record, or share test information or to facilitate cheating on the test, it may be subject to search pursuant to LEA policy for any information directly related to the ACAP test being administered. Additionally, the student will be dismissed from testing immediately and the test may be invalidated in accordance with ACAP policy.Violation(s) may result in disciplinary action by the LEA in accordance with the LEA's disciplinary policy.


The mission of Southside High School is to make certain that each student realizes his or her own unique potential. We strive to provide progressive instruction and a broad curriculum to ensure that all students meet state standards and are prepared for future challenges.
