State law (KRS 158.154) requires schools to report specified offenses committed on school property to the local law enforcement agencies. Immediate notification must be provided to police departments when a principal has reasonable belief that an act has occurred on school property or at school-sponsored function involving assault resulting in serious physical injury, a sexual offense, kidnapping, assault involving use of weapons, possession of firearms in violation of a law or possession of controlled substance in violation of law, or damage to property. School property is defined as any public-school building, bus, public school campus, grounds, recreational area, or athletic field, in the charge of the principal.
