Legal question sent to State College Police Department
By email sent Friday, July 23
What is the legal relationship between the State College Police Department and the State College Area School District, with regard to the SCASD's attempted privacy-invading and segregationist 'health and safety' policies recently adopted for the 2021-2022 academic year?
Specifically, if an incident occurs inside a SCASD public school building, in which an employee or student refuses to submit private medical information to the district and refuses to wear a mask, and peacefully attempts to continue with his or her job or studies, will the school building administrators have a legal basis for calling the State College Police Department for incident control?
If so, what is the current policy for how the State College Police Department officers on scene will handle the incident?
Will the police forcibly remove the peaceful employee or student from the building and charge him or her with trespassing in a public school building?
Or will the police instead protect the employee or student from the administrators, and charge administrators with attempted assault or a similar crime related to interference with another person's bodily integrity?
If possible, I would like to receive an answer in writing.
