Evidently you have not read the dress code in the handbook.

You're allowed to wear shirts over your polo, skinny jeans are allowed, and we can wear scarves. Some people put on hoodies after class ends but before they leave the building. Some people wear jackets that cover their belts and parts of their jeans.

We went over it the first day of school. There is nothing in there against the things I listed. It's been updated.

Have you seen the kids walk out of school? There is no dress code. I have seen all colors of belts with studs, hoodies, polos with different colored shirts over them, skinny jeans, jeans with rips, jeans with jewels, scarves, etc... No one at Westview is keeping with the dress code. It is a crock!
Last week a kid was wearing cargo pants and they made him call his mom. She had to leave work just to bring him some different pants. Then he missed class to sit in the office for an hour waiting on her. Ridiculous. They need to worry more about teaching us and less about the number of pockets on our pants. Evidently you don't go to Westview and don't have a clue.

he should have worn the right clothes to school. then his mother wouldnt have had to leave work and he would have been in class. rules are rules. he is old enough to know how to follow the rules. no excuses

keep your phones off at school. if you are on the phone during class they have the right to make sure no cheating is going on. remember passing notes when they would make you read it out to everyone.

They made everyone get them out and put them on a table. They then went through their text and phone calls.

Then the damn phones should be turned off. Try locking the keypad. But keeping them turned off is even better. However, I do believe that it was illegal for them to go thru the phones.

I'm pretty sure it is legal. Same thing as note passing back in my day. It would be so funny to see today's kids at school dressed as we dressed, carrying books in their arms instead of fancy back packs, with slide rules instead of computers and calculators and after school detentions instead of in school suspensions.

Actually, they can legally search the phones per TCA 49-6-4205.

"Boo-hoo, I've got to wear a uniform." Give me a break. Grow up, get over it, make good grades and go to a university where you can wear what you want. A uniform isn't the end of the world and there are practical advantages to having a dress code. I won't do your research for you, but go to Google and search "Why should schools have a dress code?" and get to reading.

That section deals with the school having authority to search someone's person or any containers they possess *IF* they have previously found something in a locker search, etc or if a faculty member/administrator has a valid suspicion. I'm fairly certain that does not apply to cell phones, notwithstanding the idea that the search cannot be conducted for the sole reason of finding evidence (it must have already been found and lead to this second search). This is explained right in the very page you linked to. I'm not sure of other TCA sections, but a blanket search of all the cell phones in a classroom, whether they are off or not, seems to border on illegal and if I were a parent of a student at the school, I'd raise hell with the administration.

If the kids have nothing to hide, why should they worry about someone looking thru their phone?

Actually, if you check subsection 3, you will see that they can search based on pretty much any type of information that has anything to do with maintaining discipline and order. The TN Supreme Court has already ruled in several cases that this scope does include cell phones and pretty much everything else. It doesn't necessarily mean a "container" by exact definition. The phones " contain" information. In mere disciplinary cases, the contraband or information can only be gathered and acted upon by school administrators, not police. That is why probable cause is not necessary to search. This law was basically passed initially in an attempt to make schools safer. Every law is debatable just by reading the statute, but you have to read court decisions and rulings pertaining to the laws in appellate courts to get a complete understanding of it's totality. Not saying that you read it wrong, just saying that there is more to it than just the statute itself. Pretty much, school officials can search anything a student has based on third party information alone. However, police must have probable cause to do so.

This week, a teacher at Westview took 4 students out of class and left the rest of the class with a student aide and took the students with him to get donuts in town. He did this spur of the moment without parental or school permission, and I know all of this for a fact. All I am wondering is if teachers have this right to do this. Wouldn't this be a liability? One of the students is related to me, so should something be said?
