    • a school building during athletic events,
    • a school bus, or
    • a residential garage that is being used for a school-sponsored event.
  • Student or other willfully remaining within a building after it has been secured and committing a crime, such as vandalism or theft.


  • Student or other entering an unlocked gym, without permission, and using the basketball court.
