Reply to "past perfect vs. present perfect"

Thank you for your reply but I still need your help to clear up my confusion.

The first part of the excerpt reads "Public elementary and junior high school students here will be allowed to bring mobile phones starting the next school year, ..."  That means the students are not yet allowed to bring mobile phones to school and the policy change will take effect only from the next school year, which begins in April in Japan. The local government is still following the central govenment's directive at this moment.

Is the past perfect still correct?
