In order to keep students in a supervised, safe and orderly environment, the Governing Board establishes a closed campus at all district schools. The requirement to keep students on campus is part of the Board’s efforts to maintain a safe school climate and to reduce afternoon absenteeism.
Students shall not leave the school grounds at any time during the school day without written permission of their parents/guardians and school authorities. Students who leave school without authorization shall be classified truant and subject to disciplinary action. (cf.5113 – Absences and Excuses, BP 5112.5)
