Denying Access to School Premises or Activities
The school district shall provide access to the district's buildings, grounds and activities to students, parents or guardians of students, and other persons who have legitimate reasons for being on school grounds. The superintendent of schools or his or her designee (referred to herein as the “administrator”) may limit or deny access to school buildings, grounds, and activities to any person who:
1. Disrupts the educational environment;
2. Is unreasonably boisterous;
3. Engages in violence, force, coercion, threats, intimidation, or similar conduct;
4. Causes or attempts to cause damage to school property or to the property of any student or school employee;
5. Causes or attempts to cause personal injury to any student, school employee or other person on school grounds or at a school activity on or off school grounds;
6. Uses vulgar, profane, or demeaning language; or
7. Uses fighting words;
8. Poses a danger to the safety and well being of students.
Upon determining that a person has engaged in, or is engaging in conduct that constitutes grounds for exclusion under this policy, the administrator shall take such action as he or she determines appropriate, including directing the person to cease engaging in the conduct or to leave the school premises or activity immediately. The administrator may request assistance from law enforcement authorities to remove an offending person from the school grounds.
The administrator shall have the authority to fix the time when, and the conditions under which, the offending person may return to school premises. A person who enters school premises in violation of these conditions shall be deemed to be trespassing. The administrator may summon law enforcement authorities to remove the person and request that criminal proceedings be initiated.
