5513 Policy_Care of District Property

Basic to the philosophy of the Board of Education is a respect for the rights of others. Students are urged to
exercise this respect in regard to the belongings of others, including District property. Each student should realize
that vandalism to District property is costly to repair and is directly related to increased school taxes.
In accordance with law, students who cause damage to District property shall be subject to disciplinary measures
including suspension and expulsion. Also their parents shall be financially liable for such damage to the extent of
the law except that students over eighteen (18) years of age shall be liable for damage they cause.
The Board authorizes the imposition of fines for the loss, damage, or destruction of District owned, borrowed or
leased equipment, school records, apparatus, musical instruments, library materials, textbooks, and for damage
to District buildings.
The Superintendent may report to the appropriate authorities any student whose damage of District property has
been serious or chronic in nature.
The Superintendent shall develop administrative procedures to implement this policy.
