Elk Grove USD | BP 5131.4 Students
The Board of Education 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 establish at each school a disturbance response plan 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 disturbance response plan shall address the role of law enforcement. When a disturbance directly threatens students or staff, the Superintendent or designee has the authority to call in law enforcement personnel for assistance and may dismiss school.
Students who participate in disturbances may be subject to disciplinary action.
