Topic: Maintaining Order and Qualified Immunity for Schools
Application: Maintaining Order and Qualified Immunity Turnitin week 5
Are you aware that a teacher or other school official can search a student locker without permission or a warrant? Though there are concrete legal standards associated with search and seizure, there are also exceptions to the standards. One circumstance where the legal standards of search and seizure may not apply is in public schools. The Supreme Court recognizes that maintaining order in schools is vital to public safety and security in the school community. Therefore, school officials have the authority to conduct searches on students and their belongings when necessary to maintain order. When a search does not clearly violate recognized constitutional rights and/or is in good faith, qualified immunity can shield school officials who conduct searches from liability.
This assignment requires you to revisit the Safford v. Redding case of search and seizure from this week`s Learning Resources. After reviewing the case, think about the issues related to search and seizure such as the rights of the student, the role and responsibility of school officials, and maintenance of order in the school environment.
The assignment (2 pages):
- Explain whether the school was justified or not in searching the student and explain why.
- Explain whether qualified immunity should exist for school officials or not and explain why.
- Explain whether you agree or disagree with the precedent set by this case.
Support your Application Assignment with specific references to all resources used in its preparation. You are to provide a reference list for all resources, including those in the Learning Resources for this course.
