Can a School Legally Charge You to Get Your Kids Phone Back?

According to the Education Code in Texas, code 37.082 to be exact. A school may legally charge you up to the maximum of $15 to get your child's phone back. However, this only can be executed IF the school has already adopted a policy that was adopted by the school board. This means you should be able to find this policy in print somewhere. Trustees of the school board can pass this!  This informational video can be found on @texaschancla's TikTok page. One of the Tiktok comments asked, does the school have to pay for my kid's devices if it breaks while under the school's possession? He is going to post his video response today.
