4113 School Safety

The Board of Education believes that the safety of students and staff while in the School District’s buildings is paramount.  As part of the School District’s safety program, all employees of the School District are required to wear a District-issued Identification Badge/Proximity Card during the instructional day and for after-school activities.

The School District will issue an Identification Badge/Proximity Card to each employee at the start of each school year.  Employees must maintain the Identification Badge/Proximity Card in good condition and securely.  Any replacements will be at the employee’s cost and expense.  For the safety and security of the students and staff, employees must immediately (within 24 hours) report to their supervisor and the Human Resources Office any damage to or loss of their Identification Badge/Proximity Card.   

Ten and eleven month employees must return their Identification Badges/Proximity Cards to the school where he or she works at the end of each school year.

Failure to comply with the requirements of this Policy will result in disciplinary action against the employee in compliance with law and any applicable collectively negotiated agreement.
