SEARCH, SEIZURE AND INTERVIEW POLICY

When school administration has reasonable suspicion that criminal activity is taking place, searches of students will be conducted.  Parents will be notified of the search after the event, never before, regardless if contraband is recovered or not.  Searches will be as non-intrusive as possible and will be conducted in private whenever possible.  Personal belonging, as well as outer clothing of the student will be searched.  Students will provide the administration a written statement when requested to do so and will participate truthfully in any interview involving the breaking of school rules or policies.  This policy is published here and serves as notice to students and parents.  Any vehicle which enters school property is also subject to search at any time and once a search has begun, it may not be removed from school property until released by the administration.  Also be advised, that all school lockers are subject to random search at any unadvertised time as they are the property of the school. Canine detection units will be utilized by TPHS to conduct random searches of student’s belongings in the classrooms, lockers and vehicles.  All violations of the California Penal Code will be promptly reported to a law enforcement agency.
