In the interest of the health, safety, and welfare of all students and employees, it is necessary to treat all bomb threats seriously, as if there were in fact a bomb present. Threats should never be considered merely pranks, and appropriate action should be taken at once.
The building principal or designee shall have the authority to evacuate the building if necessary. All other decisions involving students, such as dismissal of school, shall be the responsibility of the superintendent.
Building principals shall work with local authorities in developing procedures for the proper evacuation of their school in the event of a bomb threat.
The superintendent shall cooperate fully with the police in the planning and carrying out of procedures for dealing with bomb threats.
