LIMITED OPEN FORUM – Administrative Procedures

Approved non-curriculum related groups may meet only during non-instructional time.  Attendance is limited to students and participation shall be strictly voluntary and student initiated.  Meetings shall not interfere with the orderly conduct of educational activity.  Non-instructional time shall mean any time before the first period and after the last period in the day when the students attend class.  These times are 8:00 a.m. to 8:25 a.m. and 3:15 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the senior high, and from 8:00 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. and 3:05 p.m. to 3:35 p.m. for Central and West Middle Schools.

In determining whether a group is curriculum related, the school principal or his/her designee should be able to answer these two questions affirmatively:

  1. Does the school usually sponsor an activity dealing with this subject matter?
  2. Does the school require or directly encourage student participation in such a group in connection with curriculum course work?

As a means of determining whether a student’s attendance at an approved meeting is voluntary, a school principal or his/her designee will require parental consent for attendance at meetings of noncurriculum-related groups.
