The Board of Education will permit access to school pupils on school premises and access to certain information about individual pupils for educational, occupational, and military recruitment activities. Access for recruitment purposes will be equally available to all recruitment agencies, in accordance with law.

Representatives of bona fide educational institutions, occupational agencies, and the United States Armed Forces may recruit pupils on school premises by participation in assembly programs, career day activities, and the like and by distributing literature. Permission to recruit on school premises must be requested in writing three working days before the planned activity and must be approved in advance by the Superintendent. The Superintendent shall not favor one recruiter over another, but shall not approve an activity that, in the Superintendent’s judgment, carries a substantial likelihood of disrupting the educational program of this district.

Each representative of a bona fide educational institution, occupational agency, and the United States Armed Forces will be given, on request, a copy of the pupil information directory, compiled in accordance with Policy No. 8330.

Parent(s) or legal guardian(s) and adult pupils will be informed annually in writing of their right to request a pupil’s excusal from participation in all recruitment activities and/or from a listing in the pupil information directory distributed for recruitment purposes.

Nothing in this policy shall be construed as requiring the Board to approve or participate in an activity that appears to advance or inhibit any particular religious sect or religion generally.
