Participation in community celebrations, patriotic observances, or other special events, by bands, choral groups, athletic teams, or other student groups is encouraged by the Central Community School Board as a means for maintaining better relations between the school district and the community.  The use of school groups to promote partisan politics, sectarian religious views, non-school money-raising activities, or selfish propaganda of any description, however, shall not be permitted.


School principals are urged to cooperate with any group or groups having promotion of the welfare of the youth of the community as their purpose, provided that youth of every race, religion, nationality, and social strata benefit equally.


Authority to approve participation in events of the nature described in this paragraph is delegated by the School Board to the principal and/or his/her designee, after consultation with the Superintendent.
