I will start this by saying this podcast is not legal advice, just hours upon hours of research. Every school in the country is dealing with students cell phones, and each district is taking a different approach. In this episode, I try to break down some of the basics to help get you informed about what to expect if you decide to start allowing cell phones on your campus. If over 90% of your students have them, what's to stop you from teaching your students how to use cell phones to be productive citizens in your community? I will have more posted on our blog next week, cadaleaders.wordpress.com. For more informatoin on CADA, check out our site at www.cada1.org.
