Code No.: 508.2
USE OF MOTOR VEHICLES
Policy: The board recognizes the convenience to families and students of having students drive to and park at their school attendance center. Driving a motor vehicle to and parking it at the student’s attendance center is a privilege.
Students shall drive to and park only at their designated attendance center or at the attendance center of a designated academic or extra-curricular school activity. Students may not loiter around or be in their vehicle during the school day without permission from the principal. Students shall leave their attendance center when there is no longer a legitimate reason for them to be at their attendance center. Students who drive shall enter and leave the parking lot by the routes designated by the principal.
Students who wish to drive to and park at their school attendance center shall comply with the rules and regulations established by the building principal. Failure to comply with this policy or the school district rules shall be reason for revocation of school driving and parking privileges as well as other disciplinary action including suspension and expulsion.
Students taking high school or concurrent classes offsite may drive to or from those classes, or ride with another student attending those classes, contingent on a signed transportation release and waiver form being on file in the secondary principal’s office. The student and the student’s parent/guardian must sign the form. The release and waiver form shall be valid for the school year in which it was gained and the parent/guardian may revoke the waiver at any time.
