Board allows cell phones into Zachary High School
ZACHARY - Students at Zachary High School will be allowed to bring cell phones into the building beginning in the 2013-14 school year.
The school board voted unanimously Thursday night to approve an amendment to the student handbook stating that students may bring phones or other electronic communication devices to school but may not use them unless authorized by the principal.
Superintendent Scott Devillier said teachers can use the devices in the classroom with the approval of the administration.
A policy forbidding students to have cell phones in elementary and middle schools will remain in force.
