KHCB - Dissemination of Information from Non-School and School Support Groups

Policy KHCB

Adopted: Originally March 4, 1982 as #1327
Amended: March 24, 2016

Dissemination of information to parents and students about programs or events offered beyond the regular day by local non-school (e.g., youth athletics) or school support groups must receive the approval of the Superintendent or his/her/their designee. The distribution of literature by any profit/non-profit-making ventures or groups not affiliated with Hopkinton will not be approved.

The Superintendent’s or his/her/their designee’s approval of information about programs or events will be based on satisfactory responses to the following criteria:

  1. Demonstrated value for Hopkinton Students:
  2. Congruence with current educational offerings, mission, values, and or the district’s Strategic Plan;
  3. Appropriateness for the ages and grades that would be involved; and
  4. Clarity about the lines of responsibility and adequacy of supervision.

Flyers may be posted on the district website with the approval of the Superintendent or his/her/their designee. The school district does not allow the distribution of the paper brochures or flyers to students. On rare occasions, the Superintendent or his/her/their designee may allow a school support organization to distribute paper flyers for grades Pre-K to five only or information through the district’s listserv.
