Policy 700.08 – Solicitation in Schools



Board Policy

  1. The Board recognizes that it is in the best interest of the school system to minimize outside disruptions which detract from the learning environment, encroach upon contract time, or reduce staff productivity. Further, publicly funded school and district services should not be used for private enterprise pursuits.  Therefore, the Board delegates to the District Administration responsibility for developing a policy which limits selling in schools and offices and frees employees from sales pressure in the work place.
  2. The Board authorizes the Superintendent and District Administration to establish administrative regulations consistent with this policy.



Solicitation in Schools - 700.08-1

  1. Sales directly related to education
    1. Sales representatives who wish to communicate with school staff members about education-related items or services shall:
      1. Contact the External Relations Department, who will consult with Office of School Performance, to determine authorization to contact the school principal.
      2. Once a sales representative is granted authorization, a sales representative may contact the school principal to arrange an appointment at a time which does not interfere with educational programs or staff responsibilities. At no time are vendor representatives allowed to “drop in” on a teacher or staff member during instructional time.
    2. Sales representatives who wish to communicate with District administrators about education-related items or services shall make appointments in advance. Administrators reserve the right to determine when and how sales representatives are received.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
