SIOUX FALLS, SD -
The Sioux Falls School District is considering changing its policy prohibiting students and teachers from using their personal electronic devices in the classroom.
With a limited number of school-owned laptops to go around, the district is considering letting students work from their smartphones during class.
Chemistry teacher Deb Wolf says she is excited to be able to bring her personal laptop to school to use for classroom instruction.
Information services director Bob Jensen says the district's filtering software license allow for as many as 1,000 personal devices on the network.
