9210 - PARENT ORGANIZATIONS

The Board of Education supports organizations of parents whose objectives are to promote the educational experiences of County students. However, in using the name of the County or its schools and in organizing a group whose identity derives from a school(s) of this County, the parent organization thereby shares responsibility with this Board for the welfare of participating students.

Any parent organization desiring to use the name or good offices of the County, or any of its public schools, must obtain the approval of the Superintendent.

Representatives and members of approved parent organizations shall be treated by County employees as interested friends of the schools and as supporters of public education in Morgan County.

Staff members are encouraged to join parent organization(s) in their school or in related area(s) of specialization or interest.

The Board relies upon approved organizations to operate in a manner consistent with applicable laws and with public expectations for the schools and reserves the right to review programs and initiatives of parent organizations and, further, to withdraw approval of any such organization which violates applicable laws and/or the bounds of community taste.
