Cell phone compromise plan going into action

Over at Staten Island Live, Yoav Gonen reports that beginning in September, Port Richmond High School and McKee High School will be among 16 schools citywide allowing students to store their cell phones off-campus in secure lockers. The 16 schools are piloting a storage solution the DOE is allowing as a compromise to the stringent cell phone ban that so many parents and kids hate. The lockers will accommodate only a quarter of students, Gonen reports. Has anyone heard which other schools will be part of the pilot, or how schools were selected for it?
