Student Safety

 

Students are not permitted to ride scooters, skateboards, rollerblades, etc. to school. These items are not to be on school grounds at any time. Those students who ride a bicycle to school must keep it locked to the bicycle rack located by the high school.

Protecting Students through Cooperation with Law Enforcement

Hamilton Southeastern Schools is committed to protecting students from individuals not associated with the school corporation and recognizes its responsibility to cooperate with law enforcement agencies and the Office of Family and Children or its successor in function.

When such agencies request permission to interrogate a student at school, the principal must ensure that the agency has informed the parents, when appropriate, obtained the parents’ consent after the parent and student have had meaningful consultation, and the student knowingly and voluntarily agrees to an interrogation.

Whenever it has been determined that an agency has a legitimate purpose in interrogating a student on school premises, the principal’s representative will be present throughout the proceedings. The principal will also verify that the student has been informed of his/her right to refuse to answer questions, to be informed that anything they say may be used against them in court, to consult with their parent, and be advised by legal counsel.

No student will be released to an agency, other than a law enforcement agency or child protection agency without proper warrant or written parental permission, except in the event of an emergency or for the protection of life or property as determined by the principal.

Hamilton Southeastern Schools is notified by local law enforcement agencies when a student enrolled at Hamilton Southeastern Schools is arrested or detained for allegations of delinquency which would be a crime if committed by an adult. If a student is suspend and/or expelled for activity which would be a crime if committed by an adult, Hamilton Southeastern Schools, may notify the appropriate law enforcement agencies if merited. The following information, when applicable, will be given in writing to a designated juvenile officer within the appropriate law enforcement agency:

  1. Name, age, address, and gender of the student;

  2. The nature of the offense, or activity allegedly committed and to circumstances immediately surrounding it, including the time, location and property involved;

  3. A description of the method of apprehension; and

  4. Any instruments of physical force used.

However, notwithstanding the above, the results of random drug tests administered by Hamilton Southeastern Schools will be held in the very strictest confidence and will not be shared with law enforcement agencies.

The Superintendent or his/her designee will prepare guidelines to promote understanding and cooperation between staff members and students and these agencies. (I.C. 31-32-5-1)

Student Searches

The principal or another member of the administrative staff, acting under the direction of the principal, may search the person of a student during the school day if the principal has reasonable grounds for a search of that student. The School Board authorizes the use of hand held magnetometers when such use is authorized by law.

Photograph/recording of Students & Personnel

Students may not use any device to photograph or record (including audio or video) the activities of other students or district personnel while on school property or a school-sponsored activity unless expressly authorized in advance by the building principal or designee, and with the consent of the individual(s) being recorded. Students who violate this expectation may face appropriate disciplinary consequences.
