8430 - BOMB THREAT

Beginning in the 1970's, schools have experienced a significant number of anonymous phone calls stating that bombs have been placed in a school building. These calls appear to be placed by persons who want to disrupt the school day.

While the likelihood of a bomb actually being placed in a school is very remote, the Board of Education believes the following steps should be taken to ensure the safety of students and staff:

 A.Police will be contacted and requested to investigate. Police may enlist the assistance of outside help.

 B.The Superintendent's Office and the Business Coordinator will be contacted.

 C.Students and staff will be evacuated from the building upon the decision of Superintendent/designee.

Administrators, building engineers, and maintenance personnel will assist and cooperate with police authorities.

Police and school authorities will make every effort to determine who made the bomb threat call. If an individual is apprehended, s/he shall be prosecuted to the fullest extent permitted by law. If a student is involved, the Student Code of Conduct will be enforced to its fullest and the matter referred to the appropriate court.
