N.Y. district’s school board considers banning cellphones
Sarasota school board members are considering a district-wide ban on cellphones in the classroom.
Board member Bridget Ziegler is endorsing a sweeping ban that would prohibit any cellphone use during school, regardless of age or grade.
Chairwoman Jane Goodwin has reportedly proposed a ban that would grant cellphone access based on grade level. Elementary school students would have no access to their phones, while middle and high school students would have restricted access.
