Q: School took off bathroom doors to control vaping and ditching issues. My high school is in California. Is this legal?
Hall monitors have been following kids into bathroom, not letting kids use the bathroom. It's weird and uncomfortable to use the bathroom. Can see directly to urinals, and see boys using them.
Removing bathroom doors as a measure to control vaping and ditching issues in a California high school may not be legal and may violate students' privacy rights. Additionally, hall monitors following students into the bathroom and not allowing them to use the bathroom can be considered a violation of students' rights to privacy and dignity.
While schools have a responsibility to maintain a safe and orderly environment, they must also uphold students' constitutional rights. The removal of bathroom doors and monitoring of students in the bathroom may be considered unreasonable and invasive.
It is recommended that students and parents discuss their concerns with school administrators and seek legal guidance if necessary. An experienced attorney can provide guidance on the legal rights of students and potential courses of action to address the issue.
In conclusion, removing bathroom doors in a California high school as a measure to control vaping and ditching issues may violate students' privacy rights. Additionally, monitoring students in the bathroom may be considered a violation of their rights to privacy and dignity. It is important for students and parents to discuss their concerns with school administrators and seek legal guidance if necessary.
