BOARD POLICY 446.1
446.1 - Locker Searches
School lockers are the property of the School District of Fort Atkinson. At no time does the School District of Fort Atkinson relinquish its exclusive control of lockers provided for the convenience of students. Periodic general inspections of lockers may be conducted by school authorities for any reason, at any time, without notice, without student consent, and without a search warrant. The search may be conducted by the District Administrator, a building principal, an assistant principal, a police-school liaison officer or a school employee designated by the District Administrator or building principal.
Any unauthorized or inappropriate item found in the locker may be removed. Items removed from the locker may be held by the school for return to the parent(s)/guardian of the student or retained for disciplinary proceedings, or turned over to law enforcement officials. The parent/guardian of a minor student or adult student shall be notified of items removed from the locker and turned over to law enforcement officials.
The District shall include a copy of this policy in the student handbook that is distributed annually to each student enrolled in the District.
