Interviews and Interrogations of Students by Outside Agencies on School Premises
The district encourages interviews and interrogations of students by law enforcement, the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS), and the county health department(s) to take place off school premises in order to minimize interruption to the instructional program. When an onsite interview or interrogation is warranted by the circumstances of a case, the district will utilize protocols developed in cooperation with these entities. To ensure that investigations are not impeded and that students and parent(s) / guardian(s) are afforded all rights required by law, the superintendent will establish protocols for interviews and interrogations of students on school premises. The protocols will address child abuse and neglect investigations, criminal investigations, and health department investigations.
