Miscellaneous Information

 Student Records

​Policy JRA/JRC gives your parents or guardians access to your educational records with reasonable advance notice to the school. Parents/guardians and students over 18 have the right to challenge any educational record on the grounds that it is inaccurate or misleading. School officials may obtain access to your records for educational purposes. All individually identifiable educational information is confidential except for “directory” information [name, date of birth, place of birth, participation in officially recognized sports and activities, height and weight (for athletic teams), dates of attendance, degrees and other honors awarded.] One important exception: military recruiters can obtain the names, addresses and home telephone numbers of all students in grade 9-12, unless the student requests otherwise in writing.

 Tobacco-Free Schools

District policy and state law forbid possession, smoking, chewing or other use of any tobacco product on school property or at school activities at any time. See Policy ADC.

 Hazardous Materials

​Providing an environment reasonably secure from known hazards is a reasonable expectation for each employee of the School District as well as the parents/guardians of each student.  Hazardous materials include any substance or mixture of substances that pose a fire, explosive, reactive or health hazard as more fully defined by law.  The district has procedures that address the purchase, storage, handling, transportation, and disposal of hazardous materials including asbestos, for all school facilities and operations including instructional areas. Emergency response actions and evacuation plans are also coordinated with the procedures.

 Weapons at School

​Policy JICI and state law require expulsion of any student who carries, brings, uses or possesses any dangerous or deadly weapon in any school building, on school grounds or at any school sponsored event.  The following are dangerous weapons: firearms (including air guns and pellet guns – loaded or unloaded, operable or inoperable), firearm facsimiles, fixed blade knife with a blade length of greater than 3 ½ inches, spring- loaded or pocket knife with a blade of more than 3 inches, any knife used to threaten harm to others, brass knuckles, bludgeons or any other device or substance intended to be used to inflict serious bodily injury or death. Students who inadvertently bring in a dangerous or deadly weapon will not be punished if he or she immediately, and voluntarily, notifies an adult at school and gives up the weapon.
