Policy on deadly weapons, firearm, or destructive device:
No person, including adults and visitors, shall possess, use or distribute a weapon when in a school building or on a School Location. Inspire Academy will act to enforce this policy and take appropriate action against any person who violates this policy. Inspire Academy shall notify the appropriate law enforcement agency if any individual is identified as bringing a deadly weapon, firearm or destructive device on school property; or is in possession of a deadly weapon, firearm, or destructive device on school property. Any member of the public who violates this policy shall be informed of the policy and required to leave the school location. Depending on the circumstances, the individual may be barred from future entry to school locations. In addition, if the person is a student in another School District, that School District may be contacted concerning the policy violation.
Reporting of deadly weapons, firearm, or destructive device:
The Executive Director shall notify the appropriate law enforcement agency having jurisdiction over the property where the school is located if a student is identified as bringing a deadly weapon, firearm or destructive device to school or on school property; or is in possession of a deadly weapon, firearm, or destructive device on school property. Upon receiving notification under this subsection, the law enforcement agency shall begin an investigation and take appropriate action. A student with disabilities (as defined in IC 20-35-7-7) who possesses a firearm on school property is subject to procedural safeguards under 20 U.S.C. 1415 but is not exempt from mandated reporting and/or the consequences related to such possession.
