High School 9-12
Freedom of expression is necessary to promote creativity and teach tolerance of others’ ideas. Verbal, written or symbolic speech, which causes disruption, will not be tolerated.
The administration will make judgments based on the following criteria:
- It must not be obscene.
- It may not make personal attacks on students or school employees.
- It may not advocate or cause disruption of the school day.
- It may not invade others’ privacy or be libelous.
- It may not denigrate any religion, creed, race, gender, or sexual preference.
The above criteria also apply to school-sponsored forums and will be used to judge whether verbal or symbolic speech may be punished.
