Updated 11/26/19  10:20 PM

Note: The readings below are brief. They are set up in MLA format to make it easier for you to copy and paste them into your list of works cited. For the second required reading below, “The Rights of Students in Hawaii Public and Charter Schools,” read the excerpted paragraph only. In the third required reading below, Keany quotes two different people. Here’s an example of how to include a quote from one of them in your paper:

Mary Cochran, a Board of Education member, is for drug-sniffing dogs. She argues that “the health and safety of our students in school . . . trumps any privacy rights” (Keany).

Can school officials search my locker?  School rules state that school officials can search your locker at any time for nearly any reason, even if you’re not suspected of wrongdoing.  That’s because they consider the on-campus lockers to be school property, not yours. They might even use drug-sniffing dogs. However, they can’t conduct a search for discriminatory reasons — if it is based on a student’s race, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, gender identity and expression, religion, disability, or sexual orientation.
