The School Board of Monroe County
Bylaws & Policies


The School Board recognizes that vending machines can produce revenues which are useful to augment programs and services to students and staff. It will, therefore, authorize their use in District facilities providing that the following conditions are satisfied.



The installation, servicing, stocking, and maintenance of each machine is contracted for with a reputable supplier of vending machines and their products.



The District's share of the revenues is managed by the Fiscal Officer in accordance with relevant Board policies and administrative procedures.



No products are vended which would conflict with or contradict information or procedures contained in the District's educational programs on health and nutrition.



No food or beverages are to be sold or distributed which will compete with the District's food-service program.



Food items and beverages available for sale to students in vending machines for consumption on campus shall comply with the current USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the USDA Smart Snacks in Schools regulations and applicable State law.

The Superintendent and the Fiscal Officer shall develop and implement administrative procedures which will require that these conditions are adhered to on a continuing basis.

In accordance with the nutritional standards adopted by the Board, the placement of vending machines in any classroom where students are provided instruction, unless the classroom is also used to serve meals to students, is prohibited.
