School Safety: Ridgefield School District hires armed guards

"For one, security officers will be able to search lockers and backpacks if they believe drugs, alcohol or other forms of contraband could be found there. Police officers need to cite probable cause before they conduct searches of students on school grounds, Jacobson said."

School administration can already search lockers and backpacks without probable cause.

As a matter of fact, they can search the kids too.

Kids do not have the same rights on school grounds as the general public does off school grounds.
