The Candia School Board is committed to ensuring that students are appropriately supervised at times when the District is responsible for providing students with a reasonable duty of care and supervision.

The Building Principal is responsible for administering and supervising the school, the general conduct of students, both on school premises and during school-sponsored activities off school grounds. Students should be under the supervision of a member of the school staff at all reasonable times while they are in school or attending school functions. All school staff shall ensure the safety of students even when they are not specifically scheduled for supervisory duty.

All dangerous conditions in the school should be reported at once to the Building Principal.

In schools where bus transportation is provided, the supervisory duties shall include the loading and unloading, when necessary of the students at the school. Elementary school students shall be escorted to the bus to ensure that the students board the bus safely.

The Building Principal is authorized to establish administrative rules and/or regulation in furtherance of this policy.

During school hours or while engaging in school-sponsored activities, students will be released only into the custody of parents or other authorized persons.
