VANDALISM, THEFT AND GRAFFITI

The School Board considers vandalism a very serious matter. Vandalism includes the negligent, willful, or unlawful damaging or theft of any District-owned real or personal property, including the writing of graffiti.

( cf. 3531 - Recovery for Property Loss or Damage )

Students guilty of theft or vandalism on school grounds or while engaged in school related or supervised activities may be subject to long-term suspension or expulsion and shall be removed from participation in any cocurricular sport for that sport season, and other curricular activities, student club memberships, or class offices for the balance of the semester. Such students may also be required to pay restitution for damage inflicted on Borough and/or District property.

Any District student who commits an act of vandalism shall be subject to disciplinary action, reparation for damages, and also may be reported to the appropriate authorities for legal prosecution. If reparation of damages is not made, the District also may withhold the student's grades, diploma and/or transcripts.

( cf. 5125.3 - Withholding Grades, Diploma or Transcripts )
