Vandalism Policy

The Caldwell Parish School Board shall encourage students, teachers, and every citizen of the community to cooperate in reporting any incidents of vandalism to property belonging to the Board and the name(s) of the persons believed to be responsible.  Each employee of the school district shall report to the Superintendent and/or principal every incident of vandalism known to them and, if known, the names of those responsible. The Superintendent or designee shall be authorized to sign a criminal complaint and to press charges against perpetrators of vandalism against school property, and shall further be authorized to delegate as he/she sees fit, authority to sign such complaints and to press charges.  Every effort shall be made to recover damages from adult vandals or from the parents of juvenile vandals to cover the theft of equipment or the destruction of school property. This shall apply not only to damage as a result of breaking and entering at nights or during holidays, but also to damage done to school property by pupils during the course of the school day, over and above normal wear and tear.

Any act of vandalism prior to graduation shall result in the student/students being prohibited from participation in any graduation activity, including the graduation ceremony.
