IN-1 Visitors in the Classroom

IN-1 Visitors in the Classroom

Purpose
There are many variables and circumstances which could put children and non-students at risk, thereby creating possible liability for the college. In addition, it is unfair to other students in the class for children to be present due to the possibility of disruption or the need to censor academic materials.

Scope 
Includes children, visitors and non-students.

Definitions
Children: Any person who is 15 years old and younger.

Non-student (visitor): Any person who is not currently enrolled in that GRC course and does not have the permission of an administrator to visit the class.

Policy and/or Procedure 
Visitors (children and non-students) are not allowed in classrooms unless they are enrolled participants in the class and meet all Green River College admissions requirements or have permission in advance from an administrator to visit that class. Children that are on campus for other than educational purposes need to be under parent supervision at all times
