9211 - CORPORATION-SUPPORT ORGANIZATIONS

The School Board appreciates the efforts of all organizations whose objectives are to enhance the educational experiences of Corporation students, to help meet educational needs of students, and/or provide extra educational benefits not provided for, at the time, by the Board. 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.

These needs may be educational to parents and/or children. In addition to parents, membership shall be available to the Corporation's professional staff.

Any new Corporation support organization desiring to use the name or good offices of the Corporation must obtain the approval of the Superintendent as a prerequisite to organizing.

Each approved Corporation organization shall work within the appropriate school setting and in cooperation with the principals and other staff members.

Representatives and members of approved Corporation support organizations shall in all circumstances be treated by Corporation employees as interested friends of the schools and as supporters of public education in the Corporation.

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 Corporation support organizations to operate in a manner consistent with public expectations for the schools and reserves the right to withdraw sponsorship from organizations that violate the bounds of community taste.
