SCHOOL CAMPUS POINTS OF ENTRY
Principals shall be responsible for establishing procedures that shall protect instructional time and ensure the safety and welfare of students and staff. Each school shall clearly designate each main entrance and exit. Any other entrances/exits shall be at the discretion of the principal who is authorized to take the necessary steps to secure those entrances/exits.
The designated main entrance(s)/exit(s) and any other necessary entrances/exits shall be incorporated into each school’s employee and student handbooks and regular and emergency campus procedures. A copy of the floor plan with the main entrance(s)/exit(s) and any other necessary entrances/exits clearly marked shall be provided to the Security Director. In the event that the marked floor plan is changed, an updated copy must be provided to the Security Director.
Once the main entrance/exit and any other entrances/exits have been established, the principal and his/her staff must ensure that students, staff and visitors abide by this campus procedure. Furthermore, the principal shall take the necessary steps to ensure that all other entrances/exits are secured through locking mechanisms that meet the fire codes for the buildings, but shall not obstruct egress.
In accordance with state law, no person is allowed on school grounds or in school buildings or facilities without authorization from the appropriate school official. Classroom doors shall remain locked during instructional time, but shall not obstruct egress.
