NON-INSTRUCTIONAL OPERATIONS
5681 REPORTING OF HAZARDS

The Board of Education recognizes its responsibility to provide an environment which is
reasonably secure from known hazards. The Board therefore directs the Superintendent of Schools and all professional and support staff members to comply with occupational safety and health regulations.

It is the responsibility of the entire school community to report any unsafe building or
equipment conditions to the main office as soon as possible.

If students observe other students acting in an unsafe manner, this behavior should be
reported to the nearest staff member.
