District Weapons Ban

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.
