As a reminder, student IDs are expected to be on and visible at all times. If you student has lost or misplaced their ID, they can purchase a new one in the main office before or after school for $5.

We appreciate your support with encouraging your student to have their ID at school daily as we strive to keep our campus safe.

Cell Phone Policy

At Crockett Early College High School, we support our Core Value of “Engagement” through the Collective Commitment of “Away for the Day” regarding Cell Phones and Headphones. This is in line with the AISD District Policy FNCE.

Students are allowed to possess a cell phone. However, cell phones should not be used in classrooms or hallways during instructional time. Students who need a device for instruction should use their charged, district-issued Chromebook or other approved device.

Students who are non-compliant with this policy in classrooms and hallways during school hours will have their cell phones and other devices confiscated by an administrator. If confiscated, it will not be returned until 48 hours have passed and a $15.00 fee will be administered, as allowed by Texas Education Code 37.082. Crockett High School is not responsible for phones or other electronic devices if they are stolen or damaged while on school property. For emergency contact with family, landline telephones are available to students in school offices.

Thank you for supporting student engagement in instruction at Crockett ECHS.
