3240 DISTRIBUTION OF PROMOTIONAL MATERIALS TO STUDENTS/ADVERTISING IN THE SCHOOLS

Distribution of Promotional Materials to Students

Requests are often made to the District regarding distribution or posting of leaflets, flyers, etc. Flyers from outside organizations are not to be sent home with students. In order to assure that the students are not used to exploit any private enterprise, all flyers, once approved, will be posted online to the Virtual Backpack. These items will also be emailed to those who subscribe to “Virtual Backpack E-News”.

All materials to be distributed to the children or posted in schools other that those originating within the school must comply with all administrative regulations and have prior approval granted by the Superintendent and/or building principal/designee.

Advertising in the Schools

Neither the facilities, the staff, nor the students of the School District shall be employed in any manner for advertising or otherwise promoting the interests of any commercial, political, or other non-school agency, individual or organization, except that:

  1. a) Schools may cooperate in furthering the work of any non-profit, community-wide, social service agency, provided that such cooperation does not restrict or impair the educational program of the schools or conflict with Section 19.6 of the Rules of the Board of Regents;
  2. b) The schools may use films or other educational materials bearing only simple mention of the producing firm;
  3. c) The Superintendent of Schools may, at his/her discretion, announce or authorize to be announced, any lecture or other community activity of particular educational merit;
  4. d) The schools may, upon approval of the Superintendent of Schools and the Board of Education, cooperate with any agency in promoting activities in the general public interest that are non-partisan and non-controversial, and that promote the education and other best interests of the students. 

No materials of a commercial nature shall be distributed through the children in attendance in the Brockport Central Schools except as authorized by law or the Commissioner's Regulations.
