Vandalism is the willful destruction of school property, equipment or materials. The Wilkes County Board of Education will not tolerate vandalism and may seek criminal prosecution and take any legal action available for recovery of the loss.
All losses that may be due to vandalism will be reported and recorded in accordance with procedures established by the superintendent. The principal will notify the superintendent or designee immediately of any forceful entry that results in theft and/or damages to school property.
Board of Education policies on student behavior will apply to any student who has participated in vandalizing school property.
