Vehicles may be searched in lots at Sylvania schools

The Sylvania Board of Education last night was asked to erect signs at all the district's parking lots warning that vehicles on the property are subject to search.

Larry Duwve, assistant principal at Southview High School, said that of four students' cars he had searched, three contained contraband. One had alcohol, and two had drug paraphernalia, he said.

Mr. Duwve said students understand that their lockers are school property and can be searched at any time, so some have begun to keep illicit substances in their cars. He said the drug situation at Sylvania schools is likely no different from any other system, but the signs would be a warning to avoid drugs.
