I work for a K-12 school in SW Michigan. I just received an email from administration that tomorrow the police K-9 unit will be here to search the parking lot and the students’ bags and coats. Students will be required to place their bags and coats in the hallways during this time and students will not be allowed to leave their respective classrooms.
Is this legal? What about the 4th Amendment? I can see that this would be reasonable to search one or a few students that gave administration reasonable suspicion, but the whole student body… and their cars?
I can’t give out any more information than this, not only because I’m an employee of the school, but also because this is all the information I was given.
So is this legal? What say you Teeming Legal Millions?
