Unsolicited material
We cannot accept unsolicited, uncommissioned and/or unedited material for publication in newsletters or on the website.

In addition, we cannot accept web links for organizations other than those to organizations established for the benefit of our students, or links deemed appropriate as resources by the board of education's designation representatives (Superintendent and Public Information Officer).

This policy protects the district from charges pertaining to equal access, plagiarism, copyright, and other legal issues, and will be applied to all such requests. District publications and websites are solely for the purpose of school district administration.

1. The sponsoring organization must be a nonprofit organization with established tax-exempt status.

Student Photos/Interviews

We do not use identified student photos on this website unless we have received explicit permission from parents. We may link to outside news media sources already posted on the web and to parent support organization websites and publications where our students' photos may appear.

Parent/guardian permission is obtained before we allow students to be photographed or filmed at school for television broadcast or other news media. Permission is obtained before each occurrence.

Parent permission is also required before students can be interviewed at school for quotes in print or broadcast.
