A somewhat local school district has implemented a new cell phone policy this year. Basically, if a staff person sees a phone out they take the phone and return it at the end of the day. If it happens again, the school keeps the phone for a week. If happens once more, the school keeps the phone for the entire semester, or it might have even been year. I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH THIS AT ALL but I was wondering if you imagine this will turn into a huge issue because parents could argue the schools are taking a person's property, for which they are paying for...if the school has the phone the entire year and the owner can't cancel the contract, they could be paying significant bills for an item they don't have access to. Again, I don't think phones should be out in school (especially given picture and video capabilities and texting/cheating), and I say if you don't figure it out the first time then SO BE IT, but I wonder what others will think?
