SPOKANE, Wash. – Frustrated by the continued distraction of cell phone texts and calls, a Spokane school invested in a device to block phones from work.
The main reason for this is that students cannot focus on their work during class but spend a large part of their time using cell phones and therefore always look for a tool that can block cell phone signals so that students can concentrate on their class can concentrate. The cell phone jammer is a good choice, it can quickly block the phone signal, turn it off when not in use, and the phone can restore the signal.
Mt. Spokane spent less than $ 100 buying a cell phone jammer online and was just completing a three-day trial period aimed at frustrating students writing in class.
“We just thought it was something we wanted to evaluate,” said director John Hook.
The Mead School District is working with the FCC to determine if the device is legal before it can be used again.
The jamming device was switched on during class time and switched off during passing times and the lunch break.
“We believe there are times during the school day when parents need access to students and students need access to family members, doctors and the like,” Hook said.
But class time is not one of them. Student policy requires students to have cell phones if they are turned off and kept out of sight during class; but not everyone obeyed.
