Distribution of Materials and Announcements
Policy KF, Distribution of Information/Materials, was enacted by the Clarke County School Board to inform the public and staff about displaying and distributing printed informational materials and announcements. This policy is intended to provide an appropriate mechanism for informing students, staff, and parents about school and community activities and events.
KF-CCPS-R, Distribution of Information/Materials, provides guidelines for distribution or display of printed informational materials and announcements sent home with students, displayed within the school, or posted on school property. Printed informational materials and announcements from nonprofit community organizations shall be permitted to be distributed directly to students through take-home folders, backpacks, or similar manner four times per year.
The division will designate one (1) day within the first 15 days of the school year for the distribution of printed informational materials and announcements from nonprofit community organizations. The Division shall also designate three additional days for the distribution of printed informational materials and announcements from nonprofit community organizations. Please plan to deliver the flyers, along with verification of non-profit status, to the school board five working days prior to the distribution date in bundles by school and grade, with the disclaimer on each piece of material to be distributed. (KF-CCPS-R2 will be posted on or about September 2, which will provide counts for each school).
If you have any questions regarding the distribution of materials or announcements, please contact the school board office at 540.955.6100 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
