LAUSD to ban students’ cellphone use during the school day

LOS ANGELES (NBC, KYMA/KECY) - One of the nation's largest school districts may soon ban all students' use of cellphones and social media during the school day.

A proposal passed Tuesday by the the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) Board of Education directs staff to begin developing policies for the ban.

The resolution calls for a new district policy to be in place by January.
