The Clarksdale, Miss., school board has approved the use of drones for educational purposes.

Board President Rob Tyner says Clarksdale High has a drone club that operates a drone to film athletic events and other school activities.

Tyner says the Mississippi education department initially advised banning drones from school property but changed its position after he explained how and why the school system wants to use them. Drones can be used only with the superintendent's consent.
