J.20 Safe Schools - June 2006 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.

The Board of Education is committed to providing an education to all children who live in the district, regardless of their citizenship status. The safety and welfare of students is a priority of the Board. Protecting the safety and welfare of students requires the close monitoring of all visitors to campus, including law enforcement, social services, and immigration officials. The Board directs the Superintendent to implement procedures to protect all students while they are on campus.
