    PRIVACY AND PROPERTY RIGHTS

     

    Federal and state laws provide persons with a reasonable expectation of privacy in addition to freedom from unreasonable search and seizure of property.  Such guarantees are not unlimited and must be balanced by the school’s responsibility to protect the health, safety and welfare of all students.

    Student Lockers

    Students are given the opportunity to use lockers provided by the Brewton City Schools.  These lockers are property of the Board of Education and are subject to search with just cause at the discretion of school officials.  Students are responsible for the contents of their lockers and should keep them locked at all times.  Each student will be financially responsible for any damage to his/her locker.  Graffiti and stickers are prohibited.  Students may use only the locker assigned to them and may not swap lockers unless approval is given by the principal.

    Student Vehicles

    Bicycles

    Students are permitted to park bicycles in designated areas on the school campus.  Students operating a bicycle in an unsafe manner on the school campus may lose the privilege of having a bicycle on the campus.  Safety helmets are required for bicycle riders under the age of 16.
