Policy Manual

9160 - Public Attendance at School Events

The Board welcomes the attendance of the community at athletic and other public events held by the schools in the District, and the Board also acknowledges its duty to maintain order and preserve the facilities of the District during such events.

The Board holds the legal authority to bar the attendance of or remove any person whose conduct may constitute a disruption at a school event. School administrators have the authority to call law enforcement officials if a person violates posted regulations or does not leave school property when requested. They are also authorized to use detectors and other devices to better ensure the safety and well-being of participants and visitors.

If a student or adult is asked to leave or is removed from a school event, no admission fees shall be refunded.

Guide dogs used by persons requiring this type of assistance shall be permitted in all District facilities and at all school events. The person must provide evidence of the dog's certification for that purpose. If the dog is still in training, proof of liability insurance is to be provided.

The Board is aware of the increasing desire of many parents and other members of an audience to use video recorders and other audio/visual devices at school events. The Board has no objection providing their use neither interferes with student rights or with the success of the particular activity nor impinges on the enjoyment of the event by other members of the audience.
