Public Solicitation/Advertising in the District 

Students and staff are to be protected from intrusions on their time by announcements, posters, bulletins and communications of any kind from individuals and organizations not directly connected with the schools.

Materials approved for distribution via the schools to students by non-school-connected organizations must not contain advertising which is beneficial to any particular group or business. No materials of a religious nature may be distributed.

The solicitation and sale of travel services to students is prohibited on district property, at activities under the jurisdiction of the district and at interscholastic activities administered by a voluntary organization approved by the State Board of Education (i.e., Oregon School Activities Association).

This includes sale of services to students by any person or group that sells, provides, furnishes, contracts for, arranges or advertises travel services.

The administration of surveys, questionnaires and requests for information by non-school-connected organizations are disallowed. Exceptions may be approved by the superintendent.

The superintendent and principals are urged to interpret this policy strictly. Exceptions may be made when, in their judgment, the best interests of students will be served.

No commercial advertising is permitted in school buildings or on school grounds except that which is related to school functions and which has the approval of the superintendent.

The district will not participate in any fund-raising drive which does not have the approval of the superintendent.
