J.08 Student Interrogations - April 2001 Revision

Note: This policy was reviewed and revised in November 2010. We provide this revision for historic purposes only. Please refer to the current policy.

School authorities have a responsibility to cooperate with law enforcement agencies and/or child abuse investigators who are seeking to interview students at the school site. Individual students should not be interrogated on campus without the knowledge of the principal.

There is no requirement to notify the parents of the student prior to the questioning, however, the student should be made aware of his/her legal rights by the law enforcement officials. A commissioned law enforcement officer must place a student under arrest, or protective custody, before the student may be removed from the campus for either further questioning or to be held at a detention facility.

School authorities must immediately make a good faith effort to notify the parents, or legal guardians, of a student if the student has been removed from campus by law enforcement authorities.
