Relations with Law Enforcement and Other Agencies

The primary responsibility for maintaining proper order and conduct in the schools is that of staff. Where there is substantial threat to the health and safety of students or others, law enforcement shall be called upon for assistance. Information regarding major violations of the law shall be communicated to the appropriate law enforcement agency.

The district will work cooperatively with law enforcement and other appropriate agencies to address: the handling of child abuse and neglect allegations and cases; the handling of bomb threats; arrests by law enforcement officers on school premises; the availability of law enforcement personnel for crowd control purposes; the processes for investigating possible criminal activity involving students; reporting of communicable disease cases and investigations; and other matters that affect school and law enforcement cooperation.
