Britton Deerfield School District
Administrative Guidelines


In order to be in compliance with Federal postal regulations, it is necessary to establish the following guidelines regarding the use of the District's "in-house" mail-distribution system.

These items may be distributed through the system without special permission:

 A.copies of official documents or records of the District

 B.communications between the central office and each building and/or each administrator

 C.communications among staff members that are directly related to an authorized curricular, extra-curricular, or incidental program or activity of the District

 D.communications from Board-recognized outside organizations which are directly related to the District, providing the communication is related to a sponsored school activity

 E.any incidental, District correspondence

Any staff member or student who wishes to distribute any other materials through the mail-distribution must receive permission from the principal whose decision will be based on whether or not the information is directly related to school business or a school-sponsored activity.

The Post Office does not allow use of the internal delivery system for unofficial purposes in order to avoid the payment of postage. Therefore, permission will not be granted for:

 A.communications unrelated to authorized programs and activities of the District;

 B.communications from outside organizations which are not related to the District;

 C.communications from authorized employee groups and organizations;

 D.communications from nonauthorized or ad hoc employee groups or organizations;

 E.personal correspondence.
