Distribution and Posting of Materials


The distribution of materials from outside the school system uses a considerable amount of valuable educational time. This time is taken away from students, teachers, and the clerical staff. It is the District’s policy to limit the distribution of materials to parent and student organizations sponsored by the District or other governmental agencies. Materials that provide information valued or needed by the District may also be distributed.


Students should not be used to distribute partisan materials or information pertaining to a school or general election, budget or bond issue, or negotiations. Students should not be exploited for the benefit of any individual, group or profit-making organization.


No staff member may distribute any materials on school property without prior approval of the chief school administrator. All materials distributed will clearly indicate their source. Non- school-related materials will be plainly labeled, including a disclaimer that the activity is “not a school-sponsored activity.”


All organizations must have the approval of the Superintendent before materials may be distributed. The Superintendent will use the guidelines listed above in the approval of the distribution of the materials.

It is the intent to post all notices and place flyers on the distribution table except those that are viewed by the principal as likely to be disruptive, libelous or obscene.
