For safety purposes, the district permits students to possess personal mobile telephones; however, these devices must remain turned off during the instructional day, including during all testing, unless they are being used for approved instructional purposes. If a student uses a telecommunications device without authorization during the school day, the device will be confiscated. Per the Fort Bend ISD Parent/Student Handbook, the parent may pick up the confiscated telecommunications device from the principal’s office for a fee of $15.

    As per all digital devices, the district is not responsible for damaged, lost, or stolen telecommunications devices.
