5075 Distribution of Printed Materials 5075
One of the strongest links of communications between the District and the public is the pupil in the classroom.

The school administration shall take reasonable steps to ensure that the use of students as couriers is limited to carrying information about the school system, or a particular school, except as specifically provided in the following paragraph. School information may include publications, newsletters, notices, or other printed matter published under the name of the District, the individual school, or the recognized parent/teacher group.

Students may serve as couriers for information generated by non-school organizations, subject to the following conditions: (1) the information clearly states that it is not school-sponsored, (2) the information/activity is student-related, (3) the School Board, or the Superintendent, reserves the right to refuse any request for distribution of such information, on a case-by-case basis, and (4) the distribution of such information is subject to prior approval by the Superintendent or his/her designee.  Information published by the District, individual school, employee organizations or unions, recognized parent/teacher groups, or non-school groups which advocates a particular position on bond issues, political matters, labor relations issues, or District budgets will not be distributed through the use of students as couriers.
