The Board recognizes the need for the use of consultants as a means
of providing the schools with specialized services not normally required
on a continuing basis.
Funds will be made available to attract authorities in the various
fields. However, the use of consultants from outside the school system
who promote a particular commercial product or service is discouraged.
When such consultants are used, it should be made clear to them that
they are to perform as consultants, not as salesmen, and not in
violation of the Controversial Issues Policy or the Advertising Policy.
