LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) Lafayette Parish School Board members are working to clarify and possibly make changes to the district’s cellphone policy. Students are not allowed to have phones or other electronic devices audible or visible during school hours. Currently, administrators confiscate any phones that are caught on campus for a period of five or more days. One proposal is to have parents pick up the phones the same day they are confiscated.

The first offense would result in detention, a second offense would result in an in-school suspension and the third offense would result in an out-of-school suspension.Read More →
