It is the objective of the Board to provide equal educational opportunities for all students within the District. Therefore, it is the intent of the Board to study Federal legislation to enhance the educational opportunities, the educational environment, and the physical and mental growth for each student.
The Superintendent shall review new Federal education legislation and prepare proposals for programs the Superintendent deems would be of aid to the students of this District. The Board and Superintendent shall approve each such proposal prior to its submission.
The Board regards available Federal funds of aid to local school districts and communities as a public trust. It forbids the use of Federal monies for partisan political activities and for any use that would not be in accord with Federal procedures on discrimination.
All Federal funds received by the District will be used in accordance with the applicable Federal law. Accordingly, when Federal guidelines permit, Federal funds may be used to purchase food items, when those items are used to support parent training and other parent meetings. Each draw of Federal monies shall be as close as administratively feasible to the related program expenditures.
No Federal funds received by the District shall be used to:
|A.||Develop or distribute materials, or operate programs or courses of instruction directed at youth that are designed to promote or encourage sexual activity, whether homosexual or heterosexual
|B.||Distribute or to aid in the distribution by any organization of legally obscene materials to minors on school grounds or at school sponsored activities
|C.||Provide sex education or HIV-prevention education in schools unless that instruction is age appropriate and includes the health benefits of abstinence
|D.||Operate a program of contraceptive distribution in schools
The Superintendent shall develop and update administrative procedures as necessary to implement this policy.
