CARE OF SCHOOL PROPERTY BY STUDENTS
The Board of Education requires that all students respect and care for school property. Any damage to property should be reported to the main office or the appropriate teacher.
The Board recognizes that acts of vandalism are crimes against the school district and the community which supports the schools. Students who willfully destroy, damage, or deface school property shall be subject to disciplinary action, as well as prosecution to the fullest extent possible under the law. Students who damage school property, and/or their parents or guardian, shall reimburse the district for the value of the damaged property up to the limit of the law.*
It shall be the responsibility of the Superintendent of Schools to establish and carry out written regulations addressed to acts of vandalism.
