Threat of or Actual Harm to Students or District Employees

Approved:       3-13-19

Philosophy—

Because the quality of learning espoused by the Board can be carried on only in an atmosphere that is completely free from the harassment of or threat of or actual harm to students, teachers, administrators or other employees of the District engaged in the educational processes, the Board of Education insists that educational activities be free from such interferences.  Furthermore, the Board will not tolerate what it deems reprehensible conduct by parents, students, or other individuals directed toward or carried out against those engaged in the district's educational activities whether occurring on school or campus property or if the acts are in any way associated with the educational functions of the district.

Policy—

Assaults, altercations, threats, abusive language or threatening motions, whether or not accompanied by impact, and irresponsible behavior directed toward a teacher, student, official, employee or staff member of the district will be regarded as a criminal episode, committed or threatened.

In the event that such acts of aggression occur, police and civil authorities will be notified and/or summoned and the person or persons initiating the aggressive action may be prosecuted as provided by law. In such instances, district and campus property will be open for investigation and district personnel will be available to produce testimony and/or evidence in the furtherance of legal processes.
