Policies for Review

The Governing Board invites review and comments on the following policies.

GBEB-R2 - Conducted Energy Devices - Posted for comment on 11/14/2019
The Governing Board has approved the addition of conducted electrical devices (CED) as an intermediary measure necessary to provide TUSD School Safety Officers with an alternative to lethal force in situations in which TUSD School Safety personnel must intervene in ongoing acts of violence, vandalism, or disruption that present an immediate threat to health and safety of district employees and property. In its approval, the Governing Board provided clear direction that conducted electrical devices are not to be used on or with students, of any age, as the primary means to de-escalate a situation. The board also requested clearly communicated parameters for the usage and operation of body cameras.

The Governing Board does not approve Regulations, but expressed a desire to seek public comment on this particular item. The Governing Board requests your comments concerning the language in the draft proposed Regulation GBEB-R2 (below).
