legal gray area on personal phone

I don't check mail on my phone, either. I don't want to offer an opening to use my phone in an investigation.

It also really bugs me that the expectation is that my personal phone should be used for the district's or school's convenience. If they want me to have a phone to conduct my work, provide me with one! Admins get one. I had a colleague who used the fact that she used her personal phone for work as a tax write-off.

I do set boundaries by using Bloomz and setting my "office hours" on the app. Any text message sent after hours will let the parent know that I probably won't respond until the next day. I also set my classroom phone to go straight to voicemail. If there is an emergency ( a real one), they can call the school office.
