Policies, procedures and guidelines

Board Policy 1810 – Guidelines for Community Announcements in Bethlehem Central Publications

  • No announcements from for-profit organizations will be published.
  • Announcements will be published from groups affiliated with the District (often referred to as Bethlehem Central President’s Council member groups). A list of these organizations can be found below.
  • In addition, announcements regarding recreational and educational activities and programs that benefit children within the school community may be published. These activities, events, and programs must take place within District boundaries to be considered for publication.
  • From time to time, it is recognized that the Towns of Bethlehem and New Scotland seek to bring attention to important information for town residents. When one of the towns identifies information of such importance, publication will be considered.
  • Advertising/Announcements for both student fundraisers and fundraisers for booster clubs and parent organizations (groups affiliated with the District) will be published only after the fundraiser has received the necessary approvals under District policy governing such fund-raising activities.
