Guidelines for Distribution or Display of Promotional Materials
In order that promotional materials of outside organizations are distributed or displayed fairly and without creating an excessive burden on the District and its staff, the District and organizations will adhere to the following guidelines:
Manner of display/posting or stacking
The manner of communication elected by each school shall be either:
- display of a representative item (posting on a bulletin board like structure); or
- stacking flyers or representative materials on a flat surface.
The material shall be located in an area on the school campus generally accessible to students and parents/guardians. Display/posting or stacking will be on a space-available basis.
The school administrator shall determine the items to be granted permission for posting/displaying or stacking during a prescribed time period, limited to the available space designated for such purposes.
The nonprofit organization should review with the Director of School Community Services the lead-time necessary for each school to review and distribute the promotional materials.
Outside organizations are not authorized to directly distribute promotional materials to students or to their parents/guardians nor can the school directly distribute the outside organization's promotional materials to students or to their parents/guardians.
Times and places for display/posting or stacking.
Display/posting or stacking of non-school promotional materials is prohibited in any school location except the designated area or surface for such materials. Materials shall be removed on a date certain not more than one (1) month after it has been posted/stacked or five (5) days after the activity begins, whichever is earlier.
The display/posting and/or stacking location shall be available every day without regard to weather, to students who are in attendance.
