1341 Distribution of Materials Through Students, Instructional or Administrative Staff

Only regularly approved educational materials required in classroom instruction and notices to parents/guardians relative to attendance, courses, grades, discipline of students and other school-related purposes and activities can be distributed to students by the instructional or administrative staff without the prior approval of the Superintendent of Schools or designee. Materials from the Parent Teacher Organizations, the Lakeland Education Foundation and local municipalities may be distributed to students with the prior approval of the Superintendent or Schools or designee. 

In those cases where there are informational bulletins or publications which involve non-profit functions primarily for the benefit of children, including activities that encourage community service, the principal in consultation with the Superintendent of Schools or designee, may make the materials available to the students from the school office. The Superintendent of Schools or designee shall make the final judgment in all such matters.

For reasons of safety, no information or materials may be distributed to students on school buses.
