Policy Statement

The management of this organization is committed to providing student, staff, and the general public with safe and sanitary educational facilities.   It is the policy of this organization that students and staff and the general public report unsafe conditions immediately and do not perform any tasks that might be considered unsafe.  All accidents, injuries, and unsafe conditions must report immediately to school administrators or supervisors.  No such report will result in retaliation, penalty, or other disincentive.  Students, staff, and the general public's recommendations to improve safety and health conditions within our facilities will be given thorough consideration by our management team.  Management will give top priority to provide the financial resources for the correction of unsafe conditions.  Similarly, management will take disciplinary action against any student or staff member who willfully or repeatedly violates safety rules.  Students who violate safety rules may face detention suspension or possible expulsion, depending on the severity of the incident. All punishment will be within the guidelines of the student code of conduct. Staff members who violate safety rules may face verbal or written reprimands and may ultimately face termination of employment. Depending on the severity of the incident, all punishment will be within the guidelines of all existing board approved employment contracts.  The primary responsibility for the coordination, implementation, and maintenance of our safety program has been assigned to:
