6325 Student Parking
  1. A. ASSIGNMENT OF PARKING

Principals may assign individual student parking spaces or designate parking spaces for students. Whenever individual spaces are designated or assigned, first priority will be given to individuals with physical disabilities. Students who need transportation in order to participate in school-related internships or off-site learning opportunities will have priority for parking spaces over other students. Pursuant to G.S. 115C-46, principals may provide for the registration of vehicles and remove cars parked in violation of school rules.

Parking on school grounds is a privilege, not a right. Parking privileges may be revoked as a consequence for violating parking rules or for violating student behavior policies, school standards or school rules as provided in policy 4302, School Plan for Management of Student Behavior. Parking fees are non-refundable for all suspensions or revocations of parking privileges. Student cars parked on school property may be searched in accordance with policy 4342, Student Searches.

B. SAFETY BELT USE

               Students who are driving a vehicle with parking privileges or riding with another student driver with parking privileges must wear a safety belt when arriving at or leaving school, and at any other time when the vehicle is in motion on school property. Notification of                  this requirement shall be part of the parking privilege application process.

               Students who fail to wear a safety belt in accordance with this board policy are subject to sanctions determined by the school, including but not limited to written warnings, parent conferences, and conditional revocation of parking privileges. This shall be done in                    accordance with policy 4302, School Plan for Management of Student Behavior.  In addition, students in violation of G.S. 20-135.2A, Seat Belt Use Mandatory, are subject to the rules and penalties as detailed in that statute.
