It is our objective to provide a smoke-free, tobaccofree environment within DCSD. The visible possession and use of tobacco by employees in or on any school property or while participating in any school-sponsored activity is prohibited. This prohibition includes all forms of tobacco and e-cigarettes. Smoking is prohibited within all areas of our buildings. This restriction applies to all employees and visitors, at all times, including nonbusiness hours.
Our goal is to strive to maintain a work environment free from intimidation, threats or violent acts. Employees must not engage in intimidation, threats or hostile behaviors, physical/verbal abuse, vandalism, arson, sabotage, bullying or any other act which in DCSD’s opinion is inappropriate to the workplace. In addition, bizarre or offensive comments regarding violent events and/or behavior are not tolerated. Employees are expected to report any prohibited conduct to management. Except for authorized DCSD personnel, DCSD prohibits the possession or use of unconcealed weapons and the use of concealed weapons on DCSD property. This guideline applies to all employees, contract and temporary employees, visitors and customers on DCSD property, regardless of whether or not they are licensed to carry a concealed weapon. All weapons are banned. Employees should directly contact proper law enforcement authorities if they believe there is a serious threat to the safety and health of themselves or others. “DCSD property” covered by this guideline includes all DCSD-owned or leased buildings and surrounding areas such as sidewalks, walkways, driveways and parking lots under DCSD’s ownership or control. This guideline also applies to all DCSDowned or leased vehicles and all vehicles that come onto DCSD property. “Weapons” include, but are not limited to, handguns, firearms, explosives and knives. If employees have a question regarding whether an item is covered by this guideline, they should call Human Resources. Employees have the responsibility to make sure that any item not specifically listed above, that is possessed by the employee, is not prohibited by this guideline.
