Peg Broadcasting News Friday December 19, 2014

The Cumberland County School Board directed Superintendent Donald Andrews to coordinate with high school principals to test and refine policies concerning the use of personal communication devices by students. Current policy allows the possession of devices in school, but requires that they remain off and out of view during school hours. It was reported that violators of the policy have been subjected to the seizure of their device for up to 7 days, a move that several board members say has resulted in complaints. The policy committee recommended waiving the policy for a time, to allow administration to possibly relax the policy and test effectiveness.
