The School Board of Miami-Dade County
Bylaws & Policies
Unless a specific policy has been amended and the date the policy was revised is noted at the bottom of that policy, the Bylaws and Policies of the Miami-Dade County Public Schools were adopted on May 11, 2011 and were in effect beginning July 1, 2011.


It is unlawful for any person to sell, serve, vend or otherwise dispose of any goods, wares, or merchandise, including any food or beverages, in the public rights-of-way within 500 feet of any property, used, owned or operated by the District, including streets, sidewalks or other public property, unless done so within a secure vending area outside the perimeter of the school property established and controlled by the senior high school principal.

A "secure vending area" is an area designated by movable barriers of sufficient size to accommodate a parked vehicle and student customers in numbers reasonably anticipated by the principal.

This area must be supervised by the principal or principal's designee and the specific designation must be made in writing and filed in the school and at the local police station.

A copy of the plan providing the method of supervision and the specific location is to be sent to the Senior Executive Director of the Department of Food and Nutrition.
