Thread: search and seizure of a minor in school

  1. #1

    Angry

    My son's locker was searched and the teacher found a ten dollar bill in his bag.

    Earlier,a classmate lost her money at a school event, told the teacher who in turn asked the children if anyone knew anything about the lost money. No one reported anything at that time.

    My son said he found a money filled envelope with nothing printed on it, kept it and forgot about it.He said he didn't think it was the girls money that he found.

    While in gym the teacher searched all the kids lockers and found 10 dollars in his zipped book bag. The girl lost $14. The teacher accused my son of ( not reporting found money)keeping found money . He had ten and she lost fourteen.


    I received a notice to attend a conference. Before I go, I want to know if this was a legal search.

    Was this a legal search? He did not violate any school rules and he did not violate a law? Was there reasonable suspicion to legally search lockers and personal property? No law or rule was violated? Yet, I believe my son should have been a good samaritan and asked around to return the found money, or he should have told the teacher that he found money especially after she asked.
    He didn't really break any rules or laws for a search , did he? Please advise!!!

    Completely legal

    In sending your child to school, you agree that the locker is on school property and is searchable by the school. Any conclusions the school may draw however, you may challenge, especially in the face of inconsistencies.

    I wonder if OP will now come back, to let us know if the trauma followed her son through college.

    This one might just be. The funny thing about it, is that it looks like the poster never got her question answered so although Python came to the party a little late now carolthelibrarian has her question answered
