Lockers and Locker Searches

Where available, students shall be assigned lockers and shall only use the lockers assigned to them by school administration. The school district does not insure items left in lockers and will not reimburse the cost of replacement. Students must empty lockers when notified by the school. The School Board retains ownership and possessory control of all student lockers. School district authorities may search a student’s locker as determined necessary or appropriate, without notice to the student, without student consent and without a search warrant. The search may be authorized by the superintendent/designee or by the building principal/designee and may be conducted by the school principal/designee, assistant principal, school safety assistant or law enforcement officers. Prohibited items, such as weapons, drugs, drug paraphernalia and other items a school may list as inappropriate to the educational setting, may be removed from lockers during a search.
