Cell phone abuse has gotten out of hand.
I'm glad this is being taken care of, driving with a cell in use will cost you 200.00 , that's about time.

That is so stupid!! how can they take away something that belongs to the student and then force them to pay to get it back?!? Who would pay to get something that is already theirs?!? that is just completely wrong and stupid

They should never return them, they should have an auction for the phones.
They should fine the students as well, that'll teach them brats.

I made it through high school without a cellphone. Kids have absolutely NO reason to need one while at school. If there is something that the parents need to know, go to the office to call them. Cells are a luxury, despite all of societies' statements to the contrary, especially for kids.

I love it. Say something someone doesn't like, and here comes the race card!!

Where in the above posts did anyone say ANYTHING about race??

But since you want to go there....

A quick search will show the ISDs of Amarillo, Katy, and Klein TX have also started fining $15 for cell usage. Racial demographics show these communities to be majority causasian towns. This is actually an optional regulation passed down from the state govt. and not a random scheme to 'keep the black people down'. Hopefully most if not all ISDs will decide to adopt this policy.

The ONLY reason you need a phone in School is... well you just Don't. If you get sick or have an Emer. the School calls for you. Take All the devices & sell them to "Buy School Equipment"! Teach & They will Learn.(LOL)

The Cost of LIVES & Disabled is HIGHER than that!! I know, I was ran over in a ped~crossing by someone on a Cell Phone. I wonder if he ever thinks of me?? I got 1 settlement but, I'm still paying the price. I have NO LIFE. Only pain! 5 surgeries later & Dr. bills piling up. Just sayin... Whoever is on the PHONE can wait untill your Stopped somewhere. The LIFE you take may be YOUR OWN!!
