The Acadia Parish School Board shall require any student operating any motor vehicle on a school campus to have a valid personal driver’s license, vehicle license, and proof of liability insurance for the vehicle driven.


At the time of student registration, each student shall register his/her vehicle and vehicle license number with the principal or his/her designee.  Registration of the vehicle with school officials shall constitute permission by the owner to consent to a search of the vehicle by school officials or other properly authorized individuals when circumstances warrant, in accordance with School Board policy or for health, safety, or security reasons.  A student failing to register his/her vehicle shall surrender his/her right to oper­ate vehicles on the school campus.


If a school staff member or faculty member observes a student operating a vehicle in an unsafe manner on the school campus or at school related activities, the student may lose his/her privilege to operate a vehicle on campus.  The staff or faculty member observing such actions shall report them to the principal or to his/her designee.  No more than one warning shall be given a student concerning unsafe vehicle operation.  A second instance of unsafe operation shall result in loss of parking privileges.


Safety rules shall include the following:


  1. All cars, trucks, motorcycles, motorbikes, motorscooters, and bicycles shall be parked in the prescribed place designated by the principal.

  2. Students may not sit in cars parked on the campus or the streets surrounding the schools any time during school hours.

  3. After students arrive at school, they shall not be allowed in the parking area again until it is time to leave school, unless it is with the expressed permission of the principal.

  4. Any student guilty of speeding, skidding tires, or of any reckless operation of any type of vehicle on campus at any time shall be deprived of driving any type of vehicle on the campus.  They will lose this privilege for one week on the first offense and for the remainder of the school year on the second offense.
