School Board policies 5900 and 5010 are applicable to any student, employee, Board member, District employee, agent, consultant, contractor, vendor, visitors, volunteer, or other person in the school or outside the school at school-sponsored events, on school buses, and at training facilities or training programs sponsored by the District. While on school grounds, these adults may be responsible for the welfare of pupils and are expected to know policy information and adhere to behavioral policy standards. Therefore, both policies mandate trainings be made available to these parties, so they are better able to prevent, identify, respond, and report suspected bullying or student dating violence.
