Policy No. 3350 Gang Affiliation/Activity

The Provo City School District is committed to maintaining a school environment that is safe for students, personnel, and patrons, and ensuring an optimum learning environment. Gangs and gang-related activities disrupt the orderly operation of the schools and inhibit and detract from a school setting that is conducive to learning.

Groups or individuals which initiate or advocate activities that threaten the safety and well-being of persons or property on school grounds or at school-sponsored events are detrimental to the educational purpose of the Provo City School District and will not be tolerated. These activities may include behaviors such as hazing, personal degradation, or other actions of intimidation or threats of violence against other persons by an individual or group. Gang-related symbols and language are prohibited and students involved in their use shall be subject to disciplinary action.

All gang affiliation or gang-type incidents shall be referred to the appropriate law enforcement agency.

Students assisting in, promoting, or placing graffiti on school property, whether gang related or not, shall be subject to disciplinary action and restitution.
