Discipline Policy

The Governing Board recognizes the need to ensure a safe environment for students. Therefore, school properties may be inspected by school authorities in the interest of maintenance, health and safety. Inspections for the location of weapons and dangerous instruments are matters relating to health and safety and may be regarded as reasonable purposes for inspection by school personnel.

In addition, the Board authorizes school officials to conduct searches when there are reasonable grounds or suspicion the search will uncover evidence the student is violating the law or the rules of the district or the school.

The Board urges discretion, good judgment and common sense be exercised in all cases of search and seizure. Searches shall be made in the presence of at least one other district employee. Employees will not conduct strip searches or body cavity searches.
