LAFAYETTE - Lafayette schools have confiscated nearly 700 cellphones from about 600 students this school year for violating school restrictions for having cellular phones on campus.
According to a school district study, the most cellphone violations this school year were at Comeaux High, with 301 infractions, followed by Lafayette High with 169, Carencro High with 138, Acadiana High with 103 and Scott Middle School with 32.
The Lafayette Parish School Board is looking at how schools are enforcing the district's cellphone policy at their meeting Wednesday.
According to district policy, elementary and middle school students cannot have cellphones on campus during regular school hours. High school students can bring cellphones to campus, but cannot use them from the time they arrive on campus until the final dismissal.
