Plain Local Schools Electronic Flyer Distribution Guidelines
The Plain Local Schools Administration recognizes the importance of communicating events, signups, registrations, and information about youth programs and activities. Without promoting a specific group or activity, the Plain Local School District will make flyers available under the following guidelines:
-As of 2018, we have switched to distributing flyers electronically. Switching to electronic flyers is the result of parents, staff members and teachers expressing receiving too many flyers in the student's back packs each week.
-Public Relations Director (superintendent designee) must approve all flyers. The PR director may consider whether the flyers are age-appropriate or meet community standards of decency and propriety.
-For purposes of this policy, “non-school related materials” pertain to activities, events and subject matter that are not officially sponsored or endorsed by the Plain Local School District, and promote educational programs and activities appropriate for the children in district schools.
-Political materials and materials promoting “for profit” ventures will not be distributed/promoted nor will events and activities that compete with events or offerings by the Plain Local School District.
-Flyers must be submitted along with a distribution form for approval a minimum of 10 days prior to the event. Flyers will be approved weekly on Fridays.
-Flyers must list the name and phone number of a contact person, and a disclaimer that the Plain Local School District does not endorse the activities, viewpoints or events promoted in the material posted or distributed at the school.
-Upon approval flyers will be uploaded to the "Electronic Flyers" portion of our website and all of our principal email newsletters.
-Flyers will be approved and added to the website weekly on Fridays.
