9210 - PARENT ORGANIZATIONS
The School Board supports all organizations of parents whose objectives are to promote the educational experiences of Corporation students. However, in using the name of the Corporation or its schools and in organizing a group whose identity derives from a school(s) of this Corporation, the parental organization thereby shares responsibility with this Board for the welfare of participating students.
Any new parent organization desiring to use the name or good offices of the Corporation must obtain the approval of the principal as a prerequisite to organizing.
Representatives and members of approved school related organizations shall in all circumstances be treated by Corporation employees as interested friends of the schools and as supporters of public education in the School Corporation.
Staff members are encouraged to join such organization(s) in their related area(s) of specialization or interest.
The Board will not tolerate any undue pressure, harassment, or intimidation designed to coerce parents or teachers into membership in one (1) organization as opposed to another.
The Board relies upon approved organizations to operate in a manner consistent with public expectations for the schools and reserves the right to withdraw sponsorship from organizations which violate the bounds of community taste.
