There is more fallout from the cheating scandal at Stuyvesant High School.

Suspensions are being handed down after a student was caught texting answers to regents exams.

66 of the 71 students caught cheating face a five-day suspension from school.

Stuyvesant is also instituting an honesty policy that will have to be reviewed and signed by every student and their parents at the school.

Since classes began Thursday, 17 cellphones have been taken away from students.

In a statement, Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott said "As we said at the start of this investigation, we have zero tolerance for cheating or academic dishonesty of any kind and the students involved in this incident will now face disciplinary action."
