The Friendswood Independent School District has a new policy on text messages sent between staff and students. Trustees unanimously approved the revised guidelines. Under the new plan, employees are only allowed to message a student who is participating in an extracurricular activity that he or she oversees. A duplicate of the message will also be sent to a parent. Students should receive a letter detailing the changes.
