AP 195: Public Access to Schools

The Division believes staff, students and property should be free from disruptive or harmful actions of unauthorized persons entering school property. The Division welcomes guests to schools and would request that:

  1. Principals provide clear direction to visitors including signing in at the main office. 
  2. Principals develop and implement procedures for dealing with the presence of unauthorized persons on school property. 

Unauthorized persons entering onto school property may be considered to be trespassing and may be charged under the provisions of the Education Act or other relevant legislation.

Issues involving charges or denying access to the building or grounds etc, must be referred to the Superintendent or designate. Any subsequent actions taken by the Division will be determined by the Superintendent or designate.
