Terroristic Threat/Act Policy

The Board prohibits any district student from communicating terroristic threats or committing terroristic acts directed at any student, employee, Board member, community member or school building.

Students shall be responsible for informing the building principal regarding any information or knowledge relevant to a possible or actual terroristic threat or act.

When an administrator has conducted an investigation and has evidence that a student has made a terroristic threat or committed a terroristic act, the following Guidelines shall be applied:

  1. The building principal shall immediately suspend the student.
  2. The building principal shall promptly report the incident to the Superintendent.
  3. Based on further investigation, the Superintendent and/or his designee shall report the student to law enforcement officials.
  4. The Superintendent may recommend expulsion of the student to the Board.

A student found to have committed terroristic threats or acts may, in addition to any other discipline imposed or restitution ordered, be required to pay costs in the amount equal to the cost of the evacuation, including, but not limited to, fire and police response, and the cost of transportation of any individual(s) from the building, place of assembly or facility.

If a student is suspended and/or expelled for making terroristic threats or committing terroristic acts, the Board may require, prior to readmission, that the student provide competent and credible evidence that the student does not pose a risk of harm to others.

In the case of exceptional students, the district will take all steps necessary to comply with the Individuals with Disabilities Act.
