Zero tolerance... AISD is sending that message to students when it comes to cell phone use in schools.
Starting on Monday, AISD students who get caught using a cell phone anytime at school will have their phone taken away. They'll have to pay fifteen dollars to get it back.
As far as what is defined as using a phone... AISD's Holly Shelton says basically, if it's on and in your hand, you're breaking the rules. "Taking a picture, text messaging, downloading music, or even using it as a clock like a lot of kids do."
