Seeing-eye and service dogs are permitted on school buses and in classrooms to perform the functions for which they are trained as an accommodation for an individual's disability. Requests for such accommodation shall be made pursuant to IMG-R.
Pets and other animals are not permitted on District property, or in District vehicles, unless the animal is a service animal or is present for an educational purpose by written approval from the Superintendent or school principal.
