Security - Access to Building: ECA-ECAB
Updated

Security for district buildings and grounds (during regular school hours as well as non-school hours) contributes to the well being and safety of students and staff as well as to that of the sites themselves.

Each school building shall be inspected annually to address removal of hazards and vandalism and any other barriers to safety and supervision.

During regular school hours, flow of traffic into and out of buildings shall be closely monitored and limited to certain doors. Visitors shall check in to show proper identification and reason for being at the school and shall wear nametags identifying them as visitors. This will not apply when parents/guardians have been invited to a classroom or assembly program.

Access to school buildings and grounds outside of regular school hours shall be limited to personnel whose work requires it and to sponsors of approved student activities. An adequate key control system shall be established which will limit access to buildings to authorized personnel and will safeguard against entrance to buildings by persons unauthorized to have keys.

"Security" means not only keeping buildings locked and secure but also providing protection against physical hazards and acts of violence. It also includes having available floor plans of buildings and site plans showing campus boundaries and access points. The Superintendent requires and encourages close cooperation with local police, fire and sheriff's departments and insurance company inspectors.

Funds and valuable records shall be kept in a secure place.
