SECTION 32020



32020.  The governing board of every school district, and the
governing authority of every private school, which maintains any
building used for the instruction or housing of school pupils on land
entirely enclosed (except for building walls) by fences or walls,
shall, through cooperation with the local law enforcement and fire
protection agencies having jurisdiction of the area, make provision
for the erection of gates in such fences or walls. The gates shall be
of sufficient size to permit the entrance of the ambulances, police
equipment, and firefighting apparatus, used by the law enforcement
and fire protection agencies. There shall be no less than one such
access gate and there shall be as many such gates as needed to assure
access to all major building and grounds areas. If such gates are to
be equipped with locks, the locking devices shall be designed to
permit ready entrance by the use of the chain or bolt cutting devices
with which the local law enforcement and fire protection agencies
may be equipped.
