1007 – Visitors

The Board of Directors welcomes and invites parents and community members to visit the schools of the District.  However, since school is a place of work and learning, certain limitations and rules must be set.  The building principal is responsible for the decorum of all persons in the building and on the grounds and may set rules and regulations for the proper decorum and behavior of visitors, which shall include at a minimum:

(1)       All visitors must report to the administrative office upon arrival.  Notices to this effect shall be posted at all buildings.  (“Visitors” shall include all persons who are not enrolled students, regular staff members, student teachers, or substitute employees.)

(2)       All visitors must have approval to be in a designated area.

(3)       Persons who wish to observe a class in progress must arrange such visits in advance with the classroom teacher and must check in at the principal’s office.  The visitor shall not disrupt or interfere with the classroom.  Individual concerns must be discussed when the students are not present in the classroom.

Failure of visitors to follow the rules and regulations as outlined in this policy or any additional rules that may be established by the building principal, may be the basis for removal of the visitor from school grounds and/or for contact with law enforcement, as appropriate.
