POLICE QUESTIONING OF STUDENTS IN SCHOOL
Despite the Board’s belief that the school is not a proper place for the police to conduct interviews of students involved in formal investigations, it recognizes that there are times when problems, possibly of a criminal nature, make this necessary.
The Board considers that it has a responsibility to protect the interests and rights of pupils in its care in a manner consistent with the law. This includes principals of schools acting “in loco parentis” in the absence of parents or guardians and the prompt informing of parents or guardians when pupils’ rights or interests are a matter of concern.
