Numerous E recau iforis are taken in an ef- rt to cutb theft as well as vandalism but-'it does happen In · spile of these precautions. The Board of Education vesls in its school administration the power to establish student behavior rules and regulations. They feel they are necessary in o r d e r ' · to create and preserve conditions that nro 'essential to ^the orderly operation-ot the Schools.
