5720 Policy_Student Activism

It is the policy of the Board of Education to encourage students to express opinions and ideas, take stands, and
support policies, publicly or privately, orally and in writing. Students may be given this opportunity for expression
through established school media. Such expression should not interfere with the educational program or present a
health or safety hazard. Students may advocate change of law or school regulations and pursue their advocacy by
due process means.
Students may not use obscenity, slanderous or libelous statements, or disruptive tactics, or advocate violation of
the law or school regulations.
