JMI Relations With The Community Political Campaigns
Adopted: June 15, 1998
The Board of Education believes that schools and school property are environments dedicated primarily for approved educational purposes. Political campaigns and advertising are considered activities that generally fall outside the approved curriculum. Therefore the Board requires that principals ensure that political representations in schools and on school property be confined to school visits that fit within the approved curriculum or be restricted to venues and/or times outside the regular instructional environment.
Campaign literature may be placed in staff rooms but the venue is considered inappropriate for other forms of campaigning.
