Vandalism, Theft and Graffiti

BP 5131.50

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. 3515.4 - Recovery for Property Loss or Damage)

Any district student who commits an act of vandalism shall be subject to disciplinary action, reparation for damages, and may be reported to the law enforcement.

If reparation is not made, the district shall withhold the student's grades, diploma or transcripts. 

If the student and parent/guardian are unable to pay for the damages the Superintendent or designee shall provide a program of voluntary work for the student, with credit towards the bill being calculated by the state minimum wage multiplied by the number of hours worked.  When reparations are repaid, the student's grades, diploma or transcripts shall be released. 

In absence of a reparation agreement, unpaid balances over $50 and more than 90 days delinquent will be turned over to a collections agency for collection.  

(cf. 5125.3 - Withholding Grades, Diploma or Transcripts)
(cf. 5144.1 - Suspension and Expulsion/Due Process)
(cf. AR 5131 – Code of Conduct)
