It is the best interest of the school district to provide adequate security for all school buildings.

Security means not only maintenance of secure (locked) buildings, but also protection from fire hazards and faulty electrical, plumbing and heating equipment. The Board requires and encourages close cooperation with local police and fire departments and with insurance company inspectors.

Access to school buildings and grounds outside of regular school hours shall be limited to personnel whose work requires it. A well-controlled key management system shall be maintained by the Supervisor of Buildings and Grounds which will limit access to buildings to authorized personnel only and will safeguard against the potential of entrance to buildings by unauthorized persons.

Records and funds shall be kept in safe places and under locks when required.

Protective devices, designed to be used as safeguards against illegal entry and vandalism, shall be installed when appropriate. The Board reserves the right to hire appropriate security.
