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.

At no time are vendor representatives allowed to “drop in” on a teacher or staff member during instructional time.
