Persons who wish to visit a classroom while school is in session are asked to notify the principal and obtain approval from the principal prior to the visit so appropriate arrangements can be made and so class disruption can be minimized.  Teachers and other school district personnel shall not take time from their duties to discuss matters with visitors.
It shall be the responsibility of the superintendent, in conjunction with the principals, to develop administrative regulations for approving visitors and rules for school district personnel, students, and visitors while they are in the school district's facilities.

1006.1-R Visitors to the School

Series 1000 - School-Community Relations
Visitors to the School Code No. 1006.1-R
Since school is a place of work and learning, certain limits must be set to visits.  The building principal is responsible for all persons in the building and on the grounds.  For these reasons, the following regulations apply to visitors to the school:
  1. Anyone who is not a regular staff member or student of the school shall be termed a "visitor."
  2. Any visitor to the school must report to the office of the principal upon arrival at the school; failure to do so may lead to legal charges.
  3. Parents or citizens who wish to observe a classroom while school is in session are urged to arrange such visits in advance with the teacher, so that class disruption may be kept to a minimum.
  4. Teachers are expected not to take class time to discuss individual matters with outside visitors.
  5. Under no circumstances may a student leave the school premises with an adult without first obtaining permission from the building principal or designee.
