Stefkovich, Jacqueline A.
This paper presents court cases for the purpose of updating current knowledge on search and seizure of students in the school setting. These cases focus on the balance and interplay between students' Fourth Amendment rights and school administrators' obligations to maintain order and discipline in the schools. Part of this obligation implies keeping schools safe for students. Cases are presented by category: general (21 cases), strip searches (14 cases), mass or random drug testing (13 cases), metal-detector searches (6 cases), random locker searches (3 cases), field-trip searches (4 cases), and other searches conducted without individualized suspicion (6 cases).
