Firstly, I applaud you and your spouses efforts of coparenting. It sounds like you two do a great job figuring things out. If it were me, I would be careful to change the deal so quickly. My guess is that your Ex is well aware of your son's personality disorder and the last thing he would want to do is put his child over the edge. I would take the wait and see approach for a while and if you need to change it then do it together. You might not need to at all. Perhaps you could tie the phone call priviledge being restored to some nearer term goal like getting a B on a test or paper in each of the failing classes or something of that nature. Essentially a reward for good behavior that puts him in the right direction with the hope of more to come.
Also, do you have a good grasp on why he is failing? Is he bored, spending too much time with the girl, lazy, is unable to grasp the material? I'm just wondering what the root cause is in him "failing school" in order to understand if the punishment makes sense.
