Weapons Policy

School district facilities are not an appropriate place for weapons or dangerous objects and lookalikes. Weapons and other dangerous objects and lookalikes shall be taken from students and others who bring them onto school district property. Parents of students found to possess a weapon or dangerous object or lookalikes shall be notified of the incident and reported to law enforcement officials if intended to cause harm.

Students bringing a firearm to school or knowingly possessing firearms at school shall be expelled for not less than twelve months. The Superintendent shall have the authority to recommend this expulsion requirement be modified for a student on a case-by-case basis.  Board Policy 502.8 explains in detail the District weapons policy.
