School District has a primary responsibility to ensure optional learning opportunities for its students. Optimal learning opportunities require a safe and healthy environment within the classroom and school. Therefore, the Superintendent desires to keep district schools and students free from the threats or harmful influence of any groups or gangs which advocate drug use, violence or disruptive behavior. The principal or his designee shall maintain continual, visible supervision of school premises, school vehicles and school-related activities to deter gang intimidation of students and confrontations between members of different gangs.

The superintendent or his designee shall establish open lines of communication with local law enforcement authorities so as to share information and provide mutual support in this effort. Disruptive student behavior related to gang activity which interferes with the educational process for others will not be tolerated and will be dealt with through established disciplinary rules, regulations, and procedures as a major disciplinary offense which may lead to expulsion of student violators.

The district shall provide on-going information to help staff members identify gangs and gang symbols, recognize early manifestations or disruptive activities and respond appropriately to gang behavior. Staff members shall be informed about conflict management techniques and alerted to intervention measures and community resources which may help students.
