The district may offer a reward to an individual(s) who provides information that results in the apprehension of a person(s) guilty of vandalism/malicious mischief or other criminal acts against the district.The amount of reward shall be determined by the superintendent on a case by case basis within any guidelines set by the Board.


The superintendent is authorized to sign a criminal complaint and to press charges against those committing acts of vandalism/malicious mischief against school property.Because incidents of willful or malicious abuse, destruction, defacing and theft of school district property are clearly contrary to the best interests of the district and injurious to the rights and welfare of the entire community, it is the policy of the Board to seek all legal remedies against persons found to have committed such acts.Full restitution for the damage will be sought from such persons, or, in the case of minors, from their parents. Certain Grade reports, diplomas and records may be withheld for failure to make restitution for assessed damages.Records requested by another school district to determine a studentís appropriate placement may not be withheld.
