Campus Disturbances   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board recognizes that all school staff must be prepared to cope with campus disturbances and to minimize the risks they entail. Staff should be especially sensitive to conditions that foster racial conflict, student protests, or gang intimidation and confrontations.

The Superintendent or designee shall work with each school to develop an Emergency Response Plan that includes provisions for curbing disruptions which create disorder and may lead to riots, violence, or vandalism at school or school-sponsored events.

The Superintendent or designee shall consult with law enforcement authorities to plan for police support during school disruptions. Each school's Emergency Response Plan shall address the role of law enforcement. When a disturbance directly threatens students or staff, the principal has the authority to call in law enforcement personnel for assistance and, in consultation with the Superintendent or designee, may dismiss school.

Students who participate in disturbance may be subject to disciplinary action.
