- Activities must be educationally sound and of direct benefit to students.
- Flyers must take into account the age or maturity of students in the intended audience.
- Materials or advertisements must support the mission and vision of the district.
Flyer approval does not constitute endorsement. The Rockwood School District reserves the right to rescind approval for any organization or person, if a complaint is received or if the organization is found to be in violation of district policy, regulations, practices and procedures.
