The Mount View High School Mobile Phone Policy and Procedures purpose is for the management of mobile phones and related electronic devices within the school. In addition to mobile phones, digital devices that have the capability to make and or receive calls, messaging capabilities or control wireless headphones are included in procedures.

Laptops and tablets are managed through MVHS and NSW DoE Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy and procedures.
