SCHOOL KEYS 

Outside Master Keys 

Keys are to be provided for each group of outside doors where locks are mastered alike.  They are for:

  • principal
  • vice-principal
  • vice-principal at an annex
  • community school co-ordinator
  • engineer-custodian
  • night custodian
  • Operations Manager.

Inside Master Keys

Inside master keys are not to be issued to teachers.  Inside master keys are for:

  • principal
  • vice-principal
  • vice-principal at an annex
  • community school co-ordinator
  • engineer-custodian
  • principal of evening classes
  • custodial staff, as needed

Retention of Keys (for teacher's classroom)

Because conditions vary from school to school, the principal will determine whether or not teachers should leave their classroom keys at the school.  Factors to consider will be security and convenience. 

No outside master keys are to be left in the school overnight.  Principals may arrange to keep a spare set of inside master keys in a safe/lockable cabinet.

Missing Keys 

The principal must notify the Operations Manager immediately if an outside master key or an outside service key is lost. 

The Operations Manager will take steps, if necessary, to change the locks.  As this is an expensive job, special care should be taken of keys. 

Duplication of Keys 

No key, inside or outside, is to be duplicated except by a requisition forwarded to the VSB office. 

All keys will be marked "NOT TO BE DUPLICATED" or "DO NOT COPY" / "D.N.C.". 

Records

Principals are to keep an up-to-date record of all master keys, both inside and outside.
