Richardson ISD is attempting to handle the issue of children being diverted by phones during class.
The locale is sending off an experimental run program at one of its middle schools to try out an innovation that permits mobile phones to be locked during the school day.
The region initially intended to send off the program districtwide at its middle and secondary schools.
However, after paying attention to the worries communicated by sure guardians, the region downsized its arrangement to turn into an experimental run program at Forest Meadow Junior High School.
"We heard, again and again, many educators share the worry they had around how much PDA use they were finding in the homeroom," new Richardson ISD Superintendent Tabitha Branum said.
Branum said she heard educators in their Spring study.
"Whether it's to check an instant message, or to take part in Snapchat, or to record a TikTok, and that it was only a genuine boundary to zero in on learning," she added.
