    printer friendly version

    Question: What's the maximum size of a knife that you can carry to school?

    Answer: All public schools have rules that prohibit students from possessing weapons at school. A knife is considered to be a weapon, but some schools have created an exception for a folding knife with a blade length of two and one-half inches or less. Other schools prohibit knives of any length.

    The disciplinary consequences of violating a school's weapon policy can be very severe, including mandatory expulsion from school. Therefore, a student who routinely carries a pocket knife should check the student handbook or the district policy on weapons before bringing a knife to school.

    i think kids should be able to carry only swiss army knifes to school because it has alot of purposes. right now im suspended and looking at expulstion for carrying a swiss army knife to school that had a blade of no more than 1 inch. so yea i think as long as you keep it in your backpack you should be able to bring a swiss army knife to school.

    The next thing i guess we would be hearing is hey lets make guns legal for schools.... think about that i know you said toyour self no way.. that would cause alot of trouble and such.. well think about a knife.. "a bully takes money from a kid then hte kid takes his knife out and stabs him.. which one is more harmful? if yo uare haveing troubles you should see a teacher/parent rather then carry a weapon to school. cause you think you are responsable for one it don't mean everyone above a certian age is. These rules are set for a reason. schools are unsafe as it is y cause more hassle?
