Gang Affiliation/Activity

The Clover Park School District is committed to maintain a school environment that is safe for students, personnel, and patrons, and to ensure an optimum learning environment. Gangs and gang-related activities disrupt the orderly operation of the schools and inhibit and detract from a school setting that is conducive to learning.

Groups, or individuals which initiate or advocate activities that threaten the safety and well-being of persons or property on school facilities or at school-sponsored events are detrimental to the educational purpose of the Clover Park School District and will not be tolerated. These activities may include behaviors such as hazing, personal degradation, or other actions of intimidation or threats of violence against other persons by an individual or group. Gang-related symbols and language are prohibited, and students involved in their use shall be subject to disciplinary action.

All gang affiliation or gang-type incidents shall be referred to the appropriate law enforcement agency. 

Students assisting, promoting or placing graffiti on school property shall be subject to disciplinary action.
