While Green Party Leader Mike Schreiner agrees that cellphones can be a distraction, he is critical of what he describes as the government's "top-down regulation" approach.
Most, if not all, schools and school boards already have cellphone and technology related policies in place.
Some in the education field have said the new policy really doesn't change much as teachers haven't been allowing inappropriate use of phones in class.
The ban comes on the heels of a public consultation conducted past year.
"I don't want to bring my electronics to school because, if it gets stolen or if it breaks, I don't want to be responsible for that", says Matteo Daher.

In 2015, NY ended its ban on cellphones, giving schools the authority to create their own, in part because parents wanted to be able to contact their children, and it was not equally enforceable.
"Schools and teachers have well-established limits and boundaries with regard to cellphone use in schools and the classroom, similar to other classroom expectations, which are designed to create positive learning environments", the association said. The improvements were largely seen among the students who were normally the lowest achieving.
