Animals At School
The Board of Trustees recognizes that animals can be an effective teaching aid. In addition, instruction related to the care and treatment of animals teaches students a sense of responsibility and promotes the humane treatment of living creatures.
Animals may be brought to school, with the written permission of a site administrator, only for educational purposes and subject to rules and precautions specified in administrative regulations related to health, safety and sanitation. Teachers shall ensure that these rules and precautions are observed so as to protect both the students and animals.
Other than for educational or special needs assistance purposes, unauthorized animals shall be strictly prohibited from any district site.
The district assumes no liability for the safety of animals voluntarily brought to school.
