A written statement was made regarding Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin's decree to restrict or ban the use of cell phones in public schools. The statement emphasized that research shows that students who use cell phones during class time have a negative impact on their education and receive lower grades.

The statement said that steps will be taken to restrict or ban the use of cell phones by students during instructional hours, adding that "mental health crisis is on the rise" among young people due to the use of cell phones and social media.

Todd Reid, spokesperson for the Virginia Department of Education, said in a statement that the regulations set by the governor's decision are aimed to take effect in schools by January 2025.
