is my school able to take my phone, with the weird contract we signed?
Im in my second year of high school and i've never had my phone taken away. My grandfather was a lawyer and he always told me to read the paper Im signing. In one of my classes the teacher got sick and we have a sub for a few weeks and the school made my class sign a contract that said they could take our phones at times we are not allowed to be on them i understand this rule its to help us. It also says they are not responsible for the care of our phones, i kept reading and noticed it said "By signing this contract you are giving the West Tyler High School/Tyler School District to take up your phone and that you will be respectful to your teacher/substitute. The funny thing is i go to an in tearily different school on the other side of the state. Are they still able to take my phone up. and my school has a rule if you get your phone taken away twice the school takes your phone keeps it in the school and make your parents come up to the school and pay $35 to get it back once i leave school and they don't give it back isn't that theft?
