3223 Policy – Freedom of Assembly

Individual students and student organizations may meet in school rooms or auditoriums, or at outdoor locations on school grounds, to discuss, pass resolutions and take other lawful action respecting any matter which directly or indirectly concerns or affects them whether or not it relates to school. Such activities will not be permitted to interfere with the normal operation of the school.

No assembly held on school premises may exclude other students on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, marital status or the presence of any physical, sensory or mental disability.

Peaceful demonstrations are permissible; however they must be held in designated places where they will present no hazards to persons or property and at designated times that will not disrupt classes or other school activities.
