    Default Can a board of education assess a fine for the possession of a cell phone?

    Q Does a board of education have the authority to assess a fine on a student or his or her parent for the possession of a cell phone?

    A No. However, a school board may impose a fee provided there is an actual cost associated with the confiscation, storage, and return of cell phones; and, the fee is related to a valid curriculum educational object. (Attorney Generalís Opinion to Sturgeon dated February 20, 2009)
