The Bossier Parish School Board shall not permit commercial advertising in any buildings of the school district or on school grounds or properties unless specifically approved by the School Board.


Neither the facilities, the staff, nor the children of the schools shall be employed in any manner for advertising or otherwise promoting the interests of any commercial, political, or other non-school agency, individual or organization, except that:


  1. the schools may cooperate in furthering the work of any administration approved non-profit community-wide social service agency; provided that such cooperation does not restrict or impair the educational program of the schools.

  2. the schools may use films or other educational materials bearing only simple mention of the producing firm and providing such materials can be justified on the basis of their actual educational values.

  3. the Superintendent may, at his/her discretion, announce or authorize to be announced, any lecture, community activity, or film of particular educational merit.

  4. the schools may, upon approval of the Board, cooperate with any agency in promoting activities in the general public interest, and which promote the education or other best interests of the student.


Nothing herein shall be construed to prevent advertising in student publications which are published by student organizations and/or advertising in programs or publications sponsored by PTA, booster clubs or other parent groups, or on athletic fields of the schools.  Prior to authorizing any advertisements on school property, the principal shall present the proposal advertisement to the Superintendent for review and presentation to the School Board for approval.


Solicitation of advertising or use of the school district to promote the merit of or sale of any product by brand name or trademark shall not be permitted by the School Board.
