“In the school environment, a search is permissible where a school official has reasonable grounds, a ‘suspicion,’ based upon the totality of the circumstances, for suspecting that the search will reveal evidence that the student has violated either the law, district policy, or rules of the school. Reasonable suspicion must be based on ‘individualized suspicion of wrongdoing,’” the policy says.
“School premises may be randomly monitored with a trained canine for contraband, including but not limited to weapons, firearms, alcohol, drugs and drug paraphernalia. Canine monitoring does not constitute a search.”
The policy cites a federal case immediately after that statement.
