Criminal Activity Affecting the Operation of the School

In certain circumstances, the building principal may require the assistance of police authorities in the investigation of possible criminal activity affecting the operation of the school. Should such police involvement require the questioning of students on school grounds, the building principal shall promptly notify the parent or guardian of a student about to be questioned that such questioning is about to take place and the parent or guardian of any such student shall be permitted to be present during such questioning.

Criminal Activity Not Involving the Operation of the School

Police interrogation of students regarding criminal activity not involving the operation of the school will generally not be allowed on school grounds provided that, where an emergency exists which requires speedy investigation, such interrogation of students may be allowed to take place with the approval of the Superintendent or his/her designee.
