Board Policies – Section K – General Public Relations
Disruptive acts at school or school-sponsored activities will not be tolerated. Persons threatening the safety of students, school personnel, or other persons; to damage school property; or to interfere with school or school activities or the educational process will be asked to leave the premises.
The school administration and staff are responsible for handling any disturbance caused by adults or students. The final decision for determining if assistance is needed is the responsibility of the superintendent or school principal. In the absence of these individuals, the determination shall be made by the assistant principal or person designated to be in charge of the building or activity. The superintendent shall be notified of any serious problem at the school.
Possession of a Firearm
Unless otherwise required by law or authorized by board policy, no person other than a law enforcement officer shall possess a firearm on any district-owned or operated property; within any district-owned or operated building or facility; in a school vehicle; in an employee’s personal vehicle being used to transport students or school staff in the performance of job duties for the district; or at any school- sponsored activity, program, or event. This prohibition includes possession of concealed and/or openly carried weapons; however, such prohibition shall not apply to the secured storage of a handgun in a district employee’s own locked vehicle on school property so long as such weapon is maintained out of plain sight.
Appropriate signs shall be conspicuously posted as directed by the board and required by law.
Anyone in violation of this policy shall be directed to leave the premises immediately and not return without prior approval from the building administrator or superintendent. Failure to comply with such order will result in a report to law enforcement.
