The Sarasota Co. School Board is considering a complete ban on cell phones during the school day.
Some board members are pushing for the ban that would prohibit the use of phones, 100 percent, regardless of age or grade.

Others are proposing cell phone access based on grade level and have a designated area in the school for phone usage.

Under the current policy, students in the school district are allowed to have cell phones but they are asked to have them powered off and out of sight.
