Highlight

The Fourth Amendment right to be free from unreasonable searches applies to searches by school authorities, and the legality of the search depends on its reasonableness.
A search by a school official is reasonable if the search was justified at its inception and the search was reasonably related in scope to the circumstances which justified the interference in the first place.
Generally, the reasonableness standard for school searches will apply when the search involves a school resource officer acting on his or her own initiative or at the direction of other school officials to further educationally related goals.
