5880 - PUBLIC PERFORMANCES BY STUDENTS

The School Board recognizes the value to students of sharing their talents and skills with the community through participation and performances in public events.

The Board endorses such performances when:

 A.they constitute a learning experience which contributes to the educational program;

 B.they do not substantially interfere with other scheduled activities of the school;

 C.the circumstances of the event do not pose a threat to the health, safety, and well-being of the students who will be involved.

All requests for public performances by students require the approval of the principal.

The Superintendent shall develop administrative guidelines to implement this policy which require that:

 A.all requests for public performances by student groups shall be presented for approval;

 B.parental permission is sought and received before students participate;

 C.when public performances are scheduled as a regular part of a course of study taken for credit, students shall be informed in advance of the obligation to participate and will be excused from participation only in accordance with the administrative guidelines governing school attendance;

 D.when a request for a public performance is not part of the regular program, all students who are members of the group invited to perform are polled for their willingness to do so and no request for a performance will be granted unless the faculty advisor believes a sufficient number will participate to represent the school fairly and will acquire a valuable learning experience;

 E.no student, group of students, or employee of this Board may receive personal compensation for the performance in public by students organized for a school activity but may collect a donation to an approved student activity fund;

 F.the interests of our students be protected and guarded against exploitation;

 G.student behavior is governed by common courtesy and the Student Code of Conduct.
