Centralia District Zero Tolerance Policy

The Centralia School District has a policy of zero tolerance for weapons of any kind on any campus in our school district. The District also has a Zero Tolerance Policy for weapon replicas and other dangerous objects. If a student brings a firearm to school or any school-sponsored function, the student will automatically be suspended and recommended to the Board of Trustees for expulsion.

Students are also prohibited from bringing knives, explosives, imitation firearms, or other dangerous objects, including but not limited to cutting and puncturing devices or incendiary devices to a school or a school-sponsored function. If a student is found to be in possession of any of these, a suspension will be imposed and the student may be expelled or transferred from their assigned school. Other consequences may also be imposed by the school district in accordance with education code provisions.

The law is very clear regarding weapons and dangerous instruments in schools. The District’s policy shall be followed if a student of any age brings a firearm, knife, explosive, imitation firearm or other dangerous object to school. The safety of all students is our number one priority.
