        The Board of Education recognizes the need to assure, to the best of its ability, the maximum safety of its students from all forms of violence and/or potential harm caused by guns and other weapons.  Any student who brings a firearm, or other dangerous weapon to school, or school sponsored activities, shall be suspended from school for a period of not less than one year.  In order to assure compliance with the Federal and/or Missouri State Laws related to the suspension of students, the Superintendent of Schools shall recommend to the Board of Education any necessary modification of this policy on a case-by-case basis (Adopted 5-9-95).
