SECURITY OF BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS

SECURITY OF BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS

Buildings constitute one of the greatest investments of the school district. It is in the best interest of pupils and taxpayers to protect that investment adequately.

Security means more than having locks and being sure that they are locked at the proper times. Security also means:

1. Minimizing fire hazards.

2. Reducing the probability of faulty equipment.

3. Guarding against the chance of electrical shock.

4. Keeping records and funds in a safe place.

5. Protection against vandalism, burglary, and other intrusions.

The Superintendent of Schools is directed to establish such rules and regulations as may be needed to provide for security in the sense outlined above.
