Courts have consistently held that students on school property have a lowered expectation of privacy.

Yes, but simultaneously they retain the normal expectation of property rights. Sue on 'privacy' grounds, and lose; sue on property grounds, and roll 'em away.

The relevant phrase of the Constitution being, of course:

''...nor be deprived of life, liberty or property, without due process of law; ...''

I should think that virtually any court would rule instantly that ''due process'' consists of rather more than some a&&wipe principal's diktat.

Don't the rulings apply to school supplied lockers?

I would expect a cell phone to be treated as a personal diary, not to be searched with out a warrant.

Best thing to do is use phones that can hold the data under some secure form of encryption.
