Bush questions vehicle searches at HLWW

HOWARD LAKE, WAVERLY, WINSTED, MN – According to policy, school officials at the Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted School District  are allowed to conduct routine inspections of the outside of students’ vehicles when parked on school property.

Officials are also allowed to search the inside of vehicles if there is a “reasonable suspicion that the search will uncover a violation of law and/or school policy or rule.”

Board Member Charles Bush questioned the wisdom of these policies at the April 10 school board meeting, stating that the school could be opening itself up for litigation.

“It’s invasive – terribly invasive,” Bush said. “I don’t want our principals to be police officers. If there is a problem, we should call the authorities.”
