TSC Board changing policy on digital devices

Students in the Tippecanoe School Corporation will be able to use electronic and mobile devices more often next school year.

The district will allow cell phones, iPods, tablets, and laptops on campus before and after school, and during lunch hours. Currently, they are prohibited during those times.

Assistant Superintendent David Notary says the change is appropriate, because of the growing importance of the devices.

"Some of the teachers are allowing them more in the classroom.”

He says if it’s found students are abusing the expanded privileges, the school board will review the policy.
