ING-R: Animals in the School (Animals in the Classroom)

I: Instructional

A common sense approach should be used when admitting animals to the classroom for educational purposes for any length off time: 

  • animals shall not be allowed to roam freely within the school setting, 
  • animals shall not be left in schools during holiday periods, 
  • teachers will be responsible for ensuring that all animal enclosures are kept in acceptable sanitary conditions, and 
  • all refuse or waste pertaining to classroom animals shall be removed using gloves, double-bagged in plastic, and placed in the appropriate receptacle.
