International High School of New Orleans First School in New Orleans to Use New Cell Phone Pouches to Keep Students Engaged in Learning
Finally some good news for teachers tired of competing with students’ cellphones for their attention during class.

IHSNO has just launched the new cellphone pouches for the 2018-2019 school year.

The initiative is the first of its kind in New Orleans to create a cell-free school campus and lessen distractions in the classroom.
