Policy Title: Distribution/Display of Promotional Materials from School-Related Organizations
Policy Code: KHCA

Print Version (in PDF)

In furtherance of its educational mission, the Governing Board authorizes its schools to distribute or display communications of school-related organizations that are designed to inform students or their parents/guardians of activities, events, programs, and other subjects that pertain to the school-related organization and that may be of interest to students and their parents/guardians.

The Governing Board prohibits the distribution or display of any promotional material related to K-12 schools other than TUSD.

Dispute Resolution

The District and its schools shall apply this policy in good faith and in a non-discriminatory manner. If the District refuses to distribute or display materials because it is deemed to be nonconforming, the school-related organization will be given an opportunity to make necessary revisions and/or deletions and resubmit the material for approval. An organization that believes that this policy has been applied improperly may request a meeting with the Superintendent or designee to review the matter. The Superintendent or designee shall determine, in his or her sole judgment, whether material submitted for distribution or display conforms to this policy.

Limited Public Forum

Tucson Unified School District operates its schools as limited public forums. This policy is intended to create a limited public forum for the distribution or display of communications of school-related organizations, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this policy and any regulations adopted by the Superintendent to implement this policy. The Governing Board may redefine or close the limited public forum at any time.
