Assistance dog
Any person wishing to bring any animal, other than a guide dog, signal dog or service dog on campus, must first seek approval from the Director of Student Services no less than ten (10) calendar days prior to the intended date of the animal’s presence on campus.  This includes animals in the classroom for educational purposes, therapy animals, support animals, and service dogs in training. If you have a service dog that is on campus please let student services know.
A request for permission must be submitted using the Approval for Animals Brought to School Form.  Please download, complete and print the form, attach the additional documents and email to Helen Burrows at  Student services will contact you and the school site once the form is received.
The form and the supporting documentation will be reviewed by the Director of Student Services.  The school administration must notify, in writing, members of the school community affected by the presence of the animal.  The community will be given 2 weeks to respond with any concerns.   Permission to bring the animal will be granted or denied following the documentation review and community response.  This is per Board Policy (BP 6163.2) and Administrative Regulation (AR 6163.2).
