Weighing the advantages and disadvantages of having cell phones in classrooms is making it challenging for school administrators to decide the right policy. According to Madison.com, Portage High School decided to ban cell phones in classrooms this year. Luxemburg-Casco School Superintendent Glenn Schlender says the school district does not look to make any changes to their policy.
Schlender says the school district tries to make the use of cell phones similar to a work environment and has not experienced any serious issues. He says when cell phone privileges are violated in the classroom, teachers handle it on a case-by-case basis.
