"They tell us that we need to have them for safety, and then we have another teacher who says you don't need to have it out," Esqueda said. "It's so confusing because we're hearing two sides of the story and don't know what to believe."
"Now we're telling you a little more clearly that you're going to be subject to disciplinary consequences which could be a warning, it could be detention, it could be Saturday school," Post said. "The principal has a whole laundry list of techniques."
Esqueda said she's not advocating full use of cell phones on campus and acknowledged that many problems could be avoided if students merely kept their phones in their bags.
Like summer mosquitoes, cell phones on school campuses aren't expected to go away anytime soon. But unlike the pesky insects, the phones won't subside as the school year begins.
Post, Bull and Gregg said that they know all cell phone use is not caught but that they try to deal with what is caught.
"If you ask the kids, they're all emergencies," said Abilene High Principal Terry Bull. "If it really is an emergency, we need to know about it."
"We want to keep up with the times," Post said. "If we're trying to fight something that's maybe not necessary to fight, then we Gucci Belt Cheap Replica
The only addition to the student code of conduct was adding that disciplinary actions could be taken if students were caught violating the "cell phones off" rule.
"I see cell phones all the time," said Cooper junior Michelle Esqueda. "I look over at different rows and see two phones out, always texting."
Although the Abilene Independent School District's student code of conduct states that students are to keep cell phones off while at school, the district will spend the upcoming year studying their use and determining a proper policy for them. "There's no change really in what we're doing this year from last year," said Steve Post, director of student services Gucci Belt Green Red Stripe
for AISD. "We're just trying to be clearer as to what will happen or could happen."

"We confiscate phones every day," Gregg said. "We certainly don't get all the ones that are being used."
Post said the district will form a 10 to 15 member committee consisting of administrators, teachers, parents and students after school begins.
thing is just the temptation to want to get on them to text or talk."
"I wish I had a solution to this, but I don't," said Gregg, who has talked to other principals in the state this summer. "I don't know that anybody has the solution of all the people that I've talked to."
don't want to be sticking our head in the sand and say, 'Nope this is the way it used to be, and we want it to be that way.'"
Post said the district would not discipline a student for legitimate emergencies. However, as Post and the two high school principals said, every phone call is considered an emergency.
"We always want to ensure that we are being as consistent and fair as possible, and that's something that we constantly remind our principals," Post said.
But with mixed philosophies among teachers, one student compared the policy to speeding tickets.
"I think that what we're looking at is a balance between (their use) and the educational day and the use of it," Bull said. "The main Louis Vuitton Belt Reversible
But the main reasons to allow their use on campus are for safety or emergencies.
Cooper High School Principal Gail Gregg said he knows some teachers don't care about cell phones, and others think the campus is no place for them. But enforcing the policy, and knowing that not everyone will be caught, is causing problems for the district.
Gregg said he understands parents' and students' positions on the issue as well as the school's stance, leaving him somewhere in the middle. Esqueda said the policy is a "battle that's never going to have a win."
Bull, entering his sixth year as Abilene High's principal, said he wants to ensure that not only the use of a cell phone but preventive and disciplinary measures don't take away from instructional time.
