5514  STUDENT US OF VEHICLES ON SCHOOL GROUNDS

 

The safety of students, staff members, school visitors, and others while on school grounds is of significant importance to the Board of Education.  A student’s use of a vehicle and/or other modes of transportation on school grounds has the potential to present a safety hazard for the student operator and to other students, staff members, school visitors and others while on school grounds.

 

Students in grades 11 and 12 are permitted to drive their automobile to and from school and park in the area designate for student parking.  The student must register their automobile with the Principal or designee who will provide the student with school rules for driving and parking on school grounds.  The school’s rules may require a permit that must be affixed on a window or be clearly visible from outside the automobile when the automobile is parked on school grounds.

 

Students are not permitted to ride bicycles to and from any school in the district.

 

Students are not permitted to bring non-motorized skateboards, scooters, roller skates, or any other non-motorized mode of transportation on school grounds during the school day.

 

The Principal of each school building may revoke the privilege of a student’s use of any vehicle or mode of transportation permitted by this Policy for the student’s failure to follow the provisions of this Policy and any requirements of State or local law or any school rule.  The Board of Education assumes no responsibility for the loss, damage, or theft of any vehicle or any mode of transportation permitted on school grounds in accordance with this Policy.
