Decatur City Schools bans cellphones from classrooms

0

Classrooms in Decatur, Ala. are now phone free learning zones. Effective aug. 15, when the 2018-2019 school year begins, cellphones in the classroom will be banned.

Decatur City Schools Superintendent Michael Douglas took to Facebook on Monday to explain the change in policy in a video. The changes comes in the wake of the move to provide all high school students with individual Chromebooks to use.

“We’re taking the cell phones out of the classroom,” Douglas said. “Because we’re providing a device we’re really gonna protect the classroom and make sure it’s for instructional purposes.”

The schools will still allow students to use phones on campus outside of the classrooms, such as in the hallways and during lunchtime.
