The Governing Board believes that it is important for parents/guardians and community members to take an active interest in the issues affecting district schools and students.  Therefore, the Board encourages interested parents/guardians and community members to visit the schools and participate in the educational program.

(cf. 1240 - Volunteer Assistance)

(cf. 5020 - Parent Rights and Responsibilities)

(cf. 6020 - Parent Involvement)

To ensure the safety of students and staff and minimize interruption of the instructional program, the Superintendent or designee shall establish procedures which facilitate visits during regular school days.  Visits during school hours should be arranged with the principal or designee.  When a visit involves a conference with a teacher or the principal, an appointment should be scheduled during noninstructional time.

(cf. 6116 - Classroom Interruptions)

All visitors must first check in and register with the principal or designee immediately upon entering any school building or grounds when school is in session.

(cf. 1112 - Media Relations)

The principal or designee may provide a visible means of identification for all individuals who are not students or staff members while on school premises.

No electronic listening or recording device may be used by any person in a classroom without the teacher's and principal's permission.  (Education Code 51512)

The Board encourages all individuals to assist in maintaining a safe and secure school environment by behaving in an orderly manner while on school grounds and by utilizing the district's complaint processes if they have concerns with any district program or employee.  In accordance with Penal Code 626.7, the principal or designee may request that any individual who is causing a disruption, including exhibiting volatile, hostile, aggressive, or offensive behavior, immediately leave school grounds.
