The Board of Education will encourage and support organizations of parent(s) or legal guardian(s) whose objectives are to promote the educational interests of district pupils.

No parent organization may organize pupils or sponsor school activities or solicit moneys in the name of this school district or of any school in the district without the prior approval of the Board. Such approval must be sought by written application to the Superintendent.

Representatives of recognized parent organizations shall be treated by district employees as interested friends of the schools and as supporters of public education in the school district.

The Board relies upon parent organizations to operate in a manner consistent with public expectations for the schools and reserves the right to withdraw recognition from any parent organization whose actions are inimical to the interests of the pupils of this district.
