Distribution of Materials and Flyers to Students

Policy: 4060/4060P - Distribution of Materials

Distribution of Materials to Students 
Any nonprofit group wishing to distribute informational material must first submit, to the superintendent or a designee, a copy of the material and a statement of the educational value the program provides to students.

Informational materials to be distributed must also be approved by the building principal and meet certain standards prior to distribution. The primary purpose of the standards is to prevent the exploitation of students by individuals or groups.

Dissemination of the information does not reflect the district’s endorsement or sponsorship of the activity. All materials distributed must contain the statement:

“The district does not sponsor or endorse this event/information and the district assumes no responsibility for it. In consideration of the privilege to distribute materials, the Cle Elum-Roslyn School District will be held harmless from any cause of action filed in any court or administrative tribunal arising out of the distribution of these materials, including costs, attorney’s fees and judgments or awards.”

The district or the school will not distribute materials that:

A. Are obscene, lewd, or vulgar;
B. Are libelous;
C. Contain language that is intimidating, demeaning, harassing or threatening on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin or ancestry, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, marital or veteran status, including, but not limited to, racial, sexual, or ethnic slurs;
D. Promote commercial enterprises;
E. Promote the violation of existing laws, regulation or ordinances, or official school policy, rules or regulations; or
F. Proselytize or disparage religious beliefs.

The school principal will review and determine whether the materials are approved for distribution to students. Final review will be made by the superintendent/designee whose decision is final. 

For approval of materials, submit a ready copy, along with which schools or grades you wish to distribute, to:

  • District Office

  • Email

  • Fax (509) 649-2404
