Stamford school officials say cellphones play a big role in student fights. Can the district regulate phones? | #students | #parents



STAMFORD — Cellphones have been tied to a number of student fights at Stamford schools this year, so officials are now looking at ways to limit how they’re used in school buildings.

One thing that is clear, however, is that banning phones from schools is a nonstarter.

“I think we can all agree we do not want to take away the cellphones,” said Michael Meyer, the director of family and community engagement for Stamford Public Schools, during the first meeting of a new cellphone policy committee earlier this week.

The committee, composed of students, teachers and administrators, was formed in response to a number of cellphone-related incidents in schools coinciding with an increased level of violence.
