IJ-R Addresses by President/Governor IJ-R
When the President of the United States or the Governor of the State of Michigan announces a planned presentation with students being the intended audience, it is the expectation of the Board of Education that students will view the presentation within the following guidelines:
o Grades K-2 will view the presentation within a week. Schools will receive a District-created, condensed version on DVD to show to the children.
o Grades 3-5 will view the presentation within two days (the day of or the day after)
o Grades 6-12 will view the presentation in the context of their Social Studies Class.
Parents will be notified in advance and will be given the opportunity to opt their students out of the presentation.
Consistent with other district policies, staff must remain neutral about political ideology while acting as an agent of or on behalf of the district. They may not indoctrinate students with any personal political beliefs or opinions.
