Orig. Code(s): ECAB
Students and citizens are urged to cooperate in reporting any incidents of vandalism/malicious mischief/ theft and the name or names of the person or persons believed to be responsible.
Each district employee will report incidents of vandalism/malicious mischief/theft or damage. The superintendent will make a full report of major vandalism/malicious mischief/theft or damage to any district property to the Board.
The superintendent is authorized to sign a criminal complaint and to press charges against those committing acts of vandalism/malicious mischief/theft against district property. Because incidents of willful or malicious abuse, destruction, defacing and theft of district property are contrary to the best interests of the district and injurious to the rights and welfare of the entire community, it is the policy of the Board to seek all legal remedies against persons found to have committed such acts. Full restitution for the damage will be sought from such persons, or, in the case of minors, from their parents. Certain records may be withheld for failure to make restitution for damages assessed.
Students who willfully destroy school property through vandalism/malicious mischief/theft or arson, who commit larceny or who create a hazard to the safety of other people on district property will be disciplined in accordance with state law and the Board’s policy on student suspensions/ expulsions and referred to law enforcement authorities.
