5514.01 - STUDENT USE OF MOTOR VEHICLES

The School Board regards the use of motor vehicles for travel to and from school by students as an assumption of responsibility on the part of those students - a responsibility in the care of property; in the observation of safety rules; and in the display of courtesy and consideration toward others.

The Board will permit the use of motor vehicles by students, in accordance with the rules of this Corporation, provided that such students are licensed drivers and have been granted permission by the building principal to drive a motor vehicle on school grounds.

The Board will not permit the use of mini-bikes for travel to and from school.

The Board will not be responsible for motor vehicles which are lost, stolen, or damaged.

The Superintendent shall develop administrative guidelines for the operation and/or parking of motor vehicles and shall disseminate those guidelines to all students so affected.

The Superintendent shall establish standards for the granting of permits which shall contain the warning that infraction of rules may result in the revocation of the permit.
