VIDALIA, La. (AP) - The Concordia Parish School Board is discussing shortening the holding period when confiscating electronic devices from students who violate the district’s policy.

The current policy requires school officials to confiscate electronic devices for the entire school year on the second and third offense.

As proposed, the period would only be for nine weeks.

Interim Superintendent Loretta Blankenstein said Thursday if it is only a nine-week period, there might be some punishment time that would help prevent additional use.

The Natchez Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/22YkIj2) no student is allowed to possess or use an electronic device on school grounds, including the school bus, unless authorized by the school principal or principal’s designee.

Electronic devices include cellphones, MP3 players, iPods, iPads or any other similar devices.
