What Not to Bring to School
Florida law prohibits students from carrying weapons on school property. The state's definition of weapons includes, among other things, the following items:
- Box cutters
The law requires that any student found in possession of a weapon, including a taser or electronic device, must be expelled for a period of one year. This is outlined in the Student Code of Conduct, state law, and School Board Policy 5.1814 - Zero Tolerance Policy. Any student who has a weapon may also face possible criminal charges, such as arrest.
