LISBON, Ohio (WKBN) – The Lisbon school board adopted a policy recommended by the Ohio High School Athletic Association to ban drones at sporting events.

Anyone with a drone can be denied admission to OHSAA activities on school premises, unless they receive permission in advance from the superintendent.

The Morning Journal reports that Lisbon Superintendent Joe Seifke isn’t looking to ban drones completely, but says a policy needs to be in place for safety.

Seifke says that last year, the school board president noticed a drone over each home football game. It was later discovered that the drone belonged to a Lisbon resident.
