Your code of conduct must now include “an explanation of the provisions regarding refusal of entry to or ejection from district property” including the appeal process. These provisions are now included in Section 37.105. They permit any administrator, SRO or school peace officer to refuse to allow a person to enter, or to eject any person from property under the district’s control. This can be done if the person refuses to leave peaceably and either 1) poses a substantial risk of harm to any person; or 2) behaves in a manner that is inappropriate for a school setting. You must first issue a verbal warning that the person’s behavior is inappropriate and may result in refusal of entry, or ejection. If the person persists after the warning, the person may be refused or ejected.
*The school must keep a record of each such verbal warning that includes the name of the person warned, and the date.
*“At the time” of refusal or ejection, “the district shall provide to the person written information explaining the appeal process.”
*The term of the refusal cannot exceed two years.
*If this happens to the parent of a student, the school must accommodate the parent so that they can participate in ARD or 504 meetings.
*There must be a notice about this, including the appeal process, posted on the district’s website and the website of each campus.
*The Commissioner is authorized to adopt rules about this.
