A safe school is essential for learning to take place.  A safe school must ensure that violence is not present and incidents of harassment, assault, possession of weapons or dangerous objects in school shall not be tolerated.  Therefore, it is resolved that the following policy shall be implemented effective immediately.

Any SWC student or employee shall not knowingly possess, handle, or transmit, any object that can reasonably be considered a weapon at any time, including, but not limited to:

  1. On the college property during and immediately before or immediately after school hours;
  2. On the college property at any other time when the college is being used;
  3. On the college property at any school activity, function, or event.

This rule does not apply to normal school supplies like pencils or compasses, but does apply to any firearm, any explosive, including firecrackers, any knife, and any other dangerous object of no reasonable use to the person.
In accordance with the above policy any person found in violation of the policy will automatically be expelled from SWC for a period of not less than one semester and referred to the criminal justice or  tribal police system. The Safe Environment Committee consisting of one administrator, two faculty members, one staff member, and two students will review any violations of this policy.  The committee’s decision shall be final.
