According to Senate Bill 1553, an administrator, school resource officer, or school district police officer may refuse to allow a person to enter on or may eject a person from property under the district’s control if:
- The person refuses to leave peaceably on request and the person poses a substantial risk of harm to any person; or
- The person behaves in a manner that is inappropriate for a school setting and:
- The administrator, school resource officer, or school district police officer issues a verbal warning to the person that the person’s behavior is inappropriate and may result in the person’s refusal of entry or ejection; and
- The person persists in that behavior.
In the event that a person is not allowed to enter or is ejected from property under the districts control, the person may appeal the decision by filing a formal complaint. The term of a person’s refusal of entry to or ejection from a school district’s property may not exceed two years. To appeal the decision, the person must adhere to the procedures outlined in Board Policy FNG (LOCAL) for students and parents, Board Policy DGBA (LOCAL) for employees, and Board Policy GF (LOCAL) for members of the public.
More information about the formal complaint process can be found on the MISD Complaints, Grievances and Concerns webpage.
