1322 - Contests For Students
The School Board approves student participation in contests that promote the school curriculum and that are deemed by the principal to be educationally beneficial to the students. However, participation by students must be voluntary and may not interfere with the instructional program. In high school, the policy of the National Association of Secondary School Principals relative to contests shall serve as a guide.
When students agree to participate in a contest sponsored by an outside organization, it shall be the responsibility of the sponsoring organization to manage the contest and provide the students with detailed information, instructions, and rules.
Students may not be required by school personnel to participate in any contests sponsored by outside organizations.
