School Visitors
Adoption Date

The Board welcomes and encourages visits to school by parents, individual Board members, other adult residents of the community and interested educators. But in order for the educational program to continue undisturbed when visitors are present and to prevent the intrusion of disruptive persons into the schools, it is necessary to invoke visitor controls.

The Superintendent or building principal has the authority to prohibit the entry of any person to a school of this Corporation or to expel any person when there is reason to believe the presence of such person would be detrimental to the good order of the school. If such an individual refuses to leave the school grounds or creates a disturbance, the principal is authorized to request from the local law enforcement agency whatever assistance is required to remove the individual.

Rules regarding entry of persons, other than students, staff, and faculty, upon school grounds or premises shall be posted conspicuously at or near the entrance to such grounds or premises.

Individual Board members shall visit as interested individuals in a similar capacity to any parent or citizen of the community. Such visits shall not be considered to be inspections nor as supervisory in nature.

Administrative guidelines shall be established for the protection of students and employees of the Corporation from disruption to the educational program of the efficient conduct of their assigned tasks.
