502.5 Student Lockers and Student Desks

Code No. 502.5


Student lockers and student desks are the property of the school district. Students will use the lockers and desks assigned to them by the school district for storing their school materials and personal belongings necessary for attendance at school. It is the responsibility of students to keep their assigned lockers and desks clean and undamaged.

To ensure students are properly maintaining their assigned lockers and desks, the principal of the building may periodically inspect all or a random selection of lockers and desks. An additional school employee and also possibly the student to whom the locker or desk is assigned will be present during the inspection of lockers and desks. Student lockers and desks may also be searched, at any time and without advance notice, in compliance with board policy regulating search and seizure.

NOTE: Iowa law requires students or another individual to be present during the inspection of lockers. For locker searches, see Policy 502.8, Search and Seizure.
