School District Of Westfield
Bylaws & Policies


Basic to the philosophy of the Board of Education is a respect for the rights of others. Students are urged to exercise this respect in regard to the belongings of others, including District property. Each student should realize that vandalism to District property is costly to repair and is directly related to increased school taxes.

Attempts should be made to teach students respect for property which can be done in connection with the care of textbooks and the use of District materials and equipment.

In accordance with law, students who cause damage to District property shall be subject to disciplinary measures including suspension and expulsion. Also their parents shall be financially liable for such damage to the extent of the law.

The Board authorizes the imposition of fines for the loss, damage, or destruction of District owned, borrowed or leased equipment, school records, apparatus, musical instruments, library materials, textbooks, and for damage to District buildings.

The District Administrator may report to the appropriate authorities any student whose damage of District property has been serious or chronic in nature.

In no case shall such referral to juvenile authorities be made without prior notification to the student's parent.
