Visits to the Schools
All citizens desiring to visit a school and/or classroom may be permitted to do so providing the following conditions are met:
· Arrangements have been made through the Building Principal's Office prior to the visit. This does not pertain to those days such as open house when the public is encouraged to visit school.
· Upon entering the building, the visitor shall proceed immediately to the Principal's or District Office to state his/her business or to give notification of his/her desire to observe classes or programs. All visitors will then be given a visitor’s badge sticker to be worn while the visitor is inside the school building.
· Permission has been received for the visit from the principal or District employee. They shall then have the right to observe classes unless it is determined that their presence would disrupt the class and prevent the instructional program from being carried out.
· All representatives of commercial firms and teacher organizations must receive permission from the Superintendent to be in the school building and contact students or teachers during the normal school day. The Superintendent shall protect the students and professional staff from undue distraction from school duties by such outside visitors.
