Every District staff member has the responsibility to assist in the overall supervision of student behavior. It is the staff member's duty to enforce school policy, administrative regulations and generally accepted discipline measures, not only in his/her classroom or assigned area, but also in other areas of school property and at school activities.
When a District staff member deems it necessary, that staff member may use such physical force as may be reasonable and necessary to restrain or control a student, to exclude or remove a student from a classroom, school area, or school activity, or to escort a student to the principal's office or other appropriate area when:
The student, by his or her words or actions, is threatening or endangering himself or herself, other students, or District staff;
The student refuses to cooperate and comply with the reasonable direction of a staff member;
In any circumstances, a District staff member shall have the right of self defense.
