This Policy establishes the parameters under which live animals may gain access to KCTCS buildings and grounds.
This Policy applies to all KCTCS owned or controlled premises and all members of the KCTCS community, including employees, students, volunteers and visitors.
KCTCS is committed to providing a safe and healthy learning environment and protecting the assets of the Commonwealth that are invested in its facilities and grounds. Uncontrolled or unsupervised animals on campus may undermine that environment and cause severe personal injury or property damage. To protect campus health and safety, animals are generally prohibited on KCTCS property, except:
- Service animals supporting an individual with a disability
- Live animals for teaching and instruction
- Live animals for performances, productions or other activities sanctioned by the college
Applicable definitions and process guidance are provided in the associated procedure.
Administrative Procedure 3.3.24-P implements this policy.
