RELATIONS WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES

It shall be the policy of the school district to cooperate with law enforcement agencies in the interest of the larger welfare of all citizens of the community and for the welfare of the student population.

Relationships between the schools and officials of law enforcement agencies in investigative matters concerning pupils will take into consideration the respective roles of the schools and law enforcement agencies in assisting and protecting the interests of the community, and ensuring the rights of all concerned.

Districts may work with local law enforcement agencies to develop drug and alcohol use prevention and drug and alcohol trafficking suppression programs. School staff will fully cooperate in the prosecution of any crime or threat affecting the school district, to the extent allowed by law.

School districts may report or disclose education records to law enforcement and juvenile justice authorities if the disclosure concerns law enforcement’s or juvenile justice authorities’ ability to effectively serve, prior to adjudication, the student whose records are released. The officials and authorities to whom such information is disclosed must comply with applicable restrictions set forth in 20 U.S.C. § 1232g (b)(1)(E).
