Poudre School District Board Policies
JLIE - STUDENT VEHICLE USE AND PARKING
When parking lots are provided on campus, all student-driven vehicles shall be parked in such lots. No vehicles may be driven on school grounds except in designated parking areas.
Student-driven vehicles shall remain parked while students are scheduled to be in class. No loitering in parked cars or on school parking lots shall be permitted during the school day.
The privilege of bringing a student-operated motor vehicle onto school premises is based upon the condition of consent by the student driver to allow a search of the vehicle when there is reasonable suspicion the search will yield evidence of contraband.
Refusal by a student, parent/guardian, or vehicle owner to allow search access to a motor vehicle on school premises when requested shall be cause for termination without further hearing of the privilege of bringing any vehicle onto school premises by said individual.
Each school is authorized to engage in routine patrolling of student parking lots, visual inspection of student automobiles, and the use of dogs trained to alert at the scent of drugs, explosives and other contraband.
Principals may adopt additional parking and driving regulations as necessary for the proper operation of their schools and programs.
JIH - SEARCHES
Each school retains the authority to patrol its student parking lots, and all vehicles parked in student lots are subject to sniffs by dogs trained to alert at the scent of drugs, explosives and other illegal or unauthorized materials. In addition, the interiors and trunks of all vehicles parked by students at school may be searched upon reasonable suspicion that they contain items or substances which it is illegal for students to possess and/or items or substances which District policy or regulations prohibit from being on school property. Failure to allow the search of a vehicle's interior or trunk under these circumstances shall result in the student's automatic loss of the privilege of parking at school for at least the remainder of the academic year.
JIH - EVIDENCE SEIZED IN A SEARCH
Any item found in the course of a search conducted in accordance with this policy and determined to be evidence of a violation of District policy, school rules, or federal, state or local laws shall be immediately seized and tagged for identification. Such evidence shall be kept in a secure place by the principal or principal's designee. If such evidence is determined to concern a violation of the law, the principal or designee shall promptly contact a law enforcement officer to pick up the evidence. Otherwise, the evidence shall be maintained by the principal or principal's designee until it is no longer needed as evidence in a school disciplinary hearing, at which time it shall be returned to the parent, guardian or legal custodian of the student from whom it was seized.
