Conduct of Campus Visitors and Access to District Property

Access to academic and administrative facilities on the Boerne ISD properties shall generally be limited to students, employees, and visitors for the purpose of learning, working, teaching, volunteering and conducting other specific and legitimate District business.

Access to individual classrooms shall be limited to students enrolled at that campus. However, a principal may grant permission for the presence of one or more visitors in the classroom if, in the principal's and the teacher's sole judgments, such presence serves a legitimate student specific connected purpose and is consistent with maintaining a proper educational environment. School Board policy GKC (Local) provides that visits to individual classrooms during instructional time shall be permitted only with the principal's and teacher's approval and such visits shall not be permitted if their duration or frequency interferes with the delivery of instruction or disrupts the normal school environment.

Visitors on Boerne ISD properties who are not students or employees shall conduct themselves in accordance with the law, as well as commonly accepted standards of behavior and safety. Civility, decency, courtesy, and respect must be demonstrated at all times. Conduct including, but not limited to, intentional or negligent disruption of the orderly process of the Boerne ISD, noise, threats, harassment, physical or verbal abuse, endangerment of the health or safety of any person or inappropriate entry into, obstruction of, or occupation of any District property by a visitor, shall be deemed a violation of school policy and the law. If a visitor engages in such conduct and does not cease such conduct when requested, the District employee who is present and in immediate charge of the area shall have the authority to inform such visitor that his or her permission to occupy district property is withdrawn, that such visitor shall leave the district property immediately, and that the failure to leave district property shall result in law officers being summoned to take appropriate law enforcement action.

This policy does not require any district employee to take action that would jeopardize the personal safety of any employee, student, visitor, or other party.
