Michael Foley's Project

Storyboard Text

  • Searches of Desks and Lockers
  • Why don't the teachers need a warrant to go through our lockers?
  • Teachers do have the right to go through our lockers because it is on school grounds. They also want to keep us safe from anything harmful. It's in the policy.
  • Flag Salute
  • Why didn't you participate in the flag salute?
  • I don't have to because its my right not to for personal reasons.
  • Mass Searches (Metal Protectors & Dogs)
  • The search dog is here today.
  • There must be a mass search. I wonder why.
  • I'm here to keep everyone safe! Woof!
  • The school has the right to search through your possessions without a warrant or consent if they are on school property and it is in their policy.
  • Individual Searches
  • May I search your backpack?
  • Students have the right to not participate in the flag salute if they have any moral objections.
  • Student Newspaper/ Publications
  • As long as it fits school policy.
  • We wrote an article about the Bill of Rights! Can we publish it?
  • The school has the right to have mass searches using metal detectors and search dogs in order to keep weapons and drugs out of school. This is an unintrusive way for schools to keep kids safe.
  • Demonstrations
  • The children are protected under the 4th amendment against unreasonable searches. For a school search to be reasonable they have to have a reason to think the search will turn up evidence it also must be the least intrusive as possible. Schools don't need a warrant for this.
  • Don't you need a warrant for that?
  • I don't need one. We are on school property and I have a reason to believe that there is evidence in your backpack.
  • The students have the first amendment right to have freedom of speech and press, but they must follow school policy. The school is the publisher that gets to make the final decision of what will be published.
  • Peaceful demonstrations such as picketing and marching are protected by the constitution but can not be disruptive towards school activities.
  • NO homework!
  • SAY NO!
