h. Student Demonstrations and Strikes
The Narragansett School System believes that students have a right to an education, and intends to protect that right through the maintenance of an uninterrupted educational program. Disorder and disruption of the school process will not be tolerated, and persons attempting such actions will be held accountable. All necessary steps will be taken to protect students, district personnel, and property.
To ensure the orderly process of education and business affairs connected with the schools and the safety of persons and property, the Narragansett School Committee directs that the procedures below be followed in case of any type of disruptive demonstration on school property or within school buildings.
It is the policy of the Narragansett School Committee to ask the assistance of the police department and uniformed police when and where necessary to ensure the safety and welfare of each student at school. Students involved in school disruptions, vandalism, violence, or other illegal acts will be subject to suspension or expulsion from school.
The Narragansett School Committee asks that each student, each teacher, and each parent assume personal responsibility for encouraging respectful relationships so that young men and women may pursue their education and develop the knowledge, understanding, and acceptance of diversity necessary in today’s society.
