KSBA weapons policy banning Pop-Tart guns includes the following passage:
A look-alike weapon refers to the following:
· Any object designed to look like or imitate a weapon; or
· Any object possessed or used by a student, employee or visitor to the school's facilities or grounds to give the impression that the object is a weapon.
Violation of this policy by staff members shall constitute reason for disciplinary action, including possible termination.
Violation of this policy by students shall require that the Principal immediately make a report to the Superintendent, who shall determine if charges for expulsion from the District schools should be filed under Policy 09.435. In addition, when they have reasonable belief that a violation has taken place, principals shall immediately report to law enforcement officials when an act has occurred on school property or at a school-sponsored function that involves student possession of a firearm in violation of the law or assault involving the use of a weapon.Violations by visitors shall be reported to a law enforcement agency.
I'm starting to think we need a Pop-Tart Day in Kentucky schools. I'm particularly interested in how the conversation would go with law enforcement for visitors who showed up wielding their Pop-Tarts. Seriously, though, this policy needs to be challenged and changed. I'll look into that this next week and report back.
