Improve campus security through an organized system of issuing and maintaining inventory control on keys and security card lock cards.


  1. Each supervisor will be responsible for determining which employees need keys/cards and the times employees need to access buildings.

  2. Keys will be issued either directly from the supervisor’s office or through written correspondence to the plant manager and/or the Superintendent’s Administrative Assistant.

  3. Employees are not permitted to make copies of keys or give their keys for temporary use to non-WSSB employees.

  4. Employees having keys which are not required for their jobs are to surrender these to their supervisors.

  5. When an employee needs keys during the year for special projects, supervisors will be responsible for making sure the employee receives the appropriate keys or cards and that they are returned after the special project has been completed.

  6. Keys for employees other than 12-month employees will be turned in at the end of the school year unless other arrangements have been made with their supervisors.

  7. Employees receiving master keys must have prior approval of the superintendent.

  8. Employee’s who are terminating their employment with WSSB shall turn in all keys/cards prior to receiving their final paycheck.
