Franklin-McKinley ESD | BP 5136 Students
The Governing Board desires to keep District schools free from the threats or harmful influence of any groups or gangs which exhibit drug use, violence or disruptive behavior. The Superintendent or designee shall take steps to deter gang intimidation of students and staff and confrontations between members of different gangs. He/she shall exchange information and establish mutually supportive efforts with local law enforcement authorities.
(cf. 3515.1 - Crime Data Reporting)
(cf. 5131.4 - Campus Disturbances)
(cf. 5131.7 - Weapons and Dangerous Instruments)
To further discourage the influence of gangs, the Superintendent or designee shall ensure that school rules of conduct are enforced consistently and that all students have access to counselors as needed. If a student exhibits signs of gang affiliation, staff shall so inform the parent/guardian.
(cf. 6164.2 - Guidance Services)
The Board believes that gang-related apparel and grooming is hazardous to the health and safety of the school environment. When there is evidence of a gang presence in District schools that disrupts or threatens to disrupt school activities, the Superintendent or designee may establish reasonable dress code regulations prohibiting students from wearing gang-related apparel. In addition, individual schools may, in their school safety plans, prohibit gang-related apparel and grooming on school grounds.
