Advertising and Distribution of Literature and Other Materials by Non-School Entities
The schools shall in no sense be an advertising medium for any
individual, organization, or business concern except by special approval
of the Superintendent or his/her designee with ratification by the
Board of Education.
No individual or entity may advertise or promote its interests by
using the names or pictures of the District and/or District school or
facility, staff members, or students except as authorized by the
Superintendent or his/her designee.
Advertising of any nature by for-profit entities on school district
property must be approved in advance by the Superintendent and/or the
School Board. Temporary advertising and/or recognition of sponsors on
school district property for PTO/PTA and District 39 Educational
Foundation events is permissible as long as it is in accordance with the
guidelines governing those organizations, is temporary in nature, and
does not create a distraction to the educational program.
Distribution of Literature and Other Materials
Literature or materials submitted by individuals or outside agencies
must not be distributed to the pupils in the schools except by
pre-approval of the Superintendent. Non-profit organizations that
operate within the Wilmette community and serve school age children may
submit for posting materials related to programs or services offered to
the Superintendent for approval.
Material from candidates and political parties will not be posted or distributed except when used as part of the curriculum.
