Buildings and grounds of the school district constitute one of the greatest investments of the school district and should be adequately preserved and protected. All employees of the district are expected to share in the responsibility for the security of school premises.
Security should mean not only keeping gates and buildings locked, but also protection from fire hazards, faulty equipment and unsafe practices. The Board encourages close cooperation with local police and fire authorities and with insurance company inspectors. All moneys and valuable records shall be kept in a safe place and under lock and key.
Access to school buildings and grounds outside of regular school hours shall be limited to personnel whose work required it. An adequate key control system shall be established so that no keys are in the hands of persons unauthorized to have them.
The Director of Facilities and Maintenance shall be in charge of all keys for the school district and shall ensure that no duplicate keys are made by any individual. Any person who has duplicate keys made without the express knowledge and consent of the Director of Facilities and Maintenance shall be required to turn in all keys in his/her possession and shall no longer be allowed to carry any school district keys. In no circumstances must keys be loaned to anyone other than the person to whom they were issued.
