I bought a cell phone signal jammer a few days ago to cut down on the truly rampant texting and phone use in my classroom. I was fairly pleased with the results, but a number of teachers were quite literally furious because it extended further than I had anticipated (truly not on purpose, but a few neighboring rooms also lost service). That said, this has quickly blown up. Apparently, unknown to me (I bought it online with no trouble), these are illegal. The principal came down and confiscated the device. Apparently, there can be upwards of an 11,000 dollar fine for their use from the FCC. This all occurred on Friday, and I was told we'll need to wait and see, and prepare for some potentially serious damage control. Has anyone experienced anything similar? What sort of trouble am I looking at here? Could my job be in trouble (I'm not tenured)?. I spoke with my union rep, but she had no idea.... she never dealt with this before. Thoughts?
