Revision History: 3/22/22 (reviewed), 2/14/23 (reviewed), 2/13/24 (updated)

Requests from law enforcement officers and from persons other than parents, school district officials, and employees to interview students are made through the principal's office. Upon receiving a request, it is the responsibility of the principal, in consultation with the Director of Student Services, to determine whether the request will be granted. Generally, prior to granting a request, the principal shall contact the parents to inform them of the request and to ask them to be present.

If a child abuse investigator wishes to interview a student, the principal will defer to the investigator's judgment as to whether the student should be interviewed independently from the student's parents or guardians, whether the school is the most appropriate setting for the interview, and who will be present during the interview.

Students will not be taken from school without the consent of the principal and without proper warrant.
