The Michigan Court of Appeals earlier this school year upheld the right of School Boards to enact district-wide gun bans on school property. The court’s ruling is available online (PDF).
Prior to this ruling, the Godfrey-Lee Board of Education enacted policies that severely restrict weapons on any school property. These policies are available at the following link: http://www.neola.com/godfreylee-mi/. Use the index to locate the appropriate section and policy number.
1217 – Weapons (Administration)
3217 – Weapons (Professional Staff)
4217 – Weapons (Classified Staff)
5772 – Weapons (Students)
7217 – Weapons (Visitors)
8142.01 – Weapons (Contractors)
There are limited exceptions to the policies in each case. Any possession of a weapon outside of the exceptions will be considered a violation of Board policy and may be reported to authorities.
