If it is on school property, and the school have told the parents about the rules (aka, signing their rule sheet at the beginning of the school year), then its legal.

Its like an EULA, by buying and using this software, you agree not to pirate / misuse it. By texting in class, you are breaking the EULA, and the school can remove it from you.


It would have to be directly spelled out in the rule book. Which in my area is not. Also depending on the type of school and area most parents don't have to sign any school agreement every new year. So if changes in policy have taken place most parents are unaware of this and should be informed thus that is why i stated earlier "the school can forbid the parents to allow it" From the time informed and then they agreed to the rules. Then yes they would have a right to take it for the week. But more then likely the rules would turn to the direction to other means of punishment such as In school expulsion or, out of school expulsion for a few days after repeated cases and parents informed.
Be glad the offender is not my child ... they would lose the phone permanently...

Get real. Yes the teacher can do that and you didn't have to ask that question here. You already knew the answer. She wasn't in the class to text.
What did you Mom or Dad do is the question? That's if they were told.

Windows 7 Ultimate Signature Edition

now i'm not 100% but i don't think any public school can prevent a student from bringing a phone onto campus, there have been instances i know of where school systems were sued over the practice and lost. it's the use of the phones on campus they have the right to control.

I believe "texting" would fall into that category...

Windows 7 x64 Professional

My daughter tried that once (using her phone in the classroom). The teacher kept her phone til the END OF TERM!!!

I kept the phone for the next term and she got a phonecard for the public phone in the school's courtyard. School's for learning, not for faffing about.
