No iPod Allowed

By  | 

One area high school is cracking down on the use of electronic devices in the classroom.

Officials at Chiles High School say if students are caught using devices like iPods, cell phones and pocket computers, they will be confiscated.

Only parents will be allowed to retrieve the items. Officials say they're concerned about student theft and cheating on tests like the FCAT.

"If the student takes the cell phone out during testing, it would very likely invalidate the test for that student and possibly for other students in the class at the time," explained Chiles High School Principal Linda Thompson, who says there is a district-wide policy addressing use of these devices on campus.
