SUPPLEMENTARY MATERIALS SELECTION AND ADOPTION REGULATION
This regulation establishes standard procedures governing the selection and classroom use of media/video materials (off-air recorded television, video programs, video tapes, DVD and movies) in Gardner Public Schools.
- Instructors may select and use media in the classroom within the limits of Policy IJK.
- Instructors will thoroughly preview all media before using them in the classroom.
- Copyright laws and guidelines for printed materials, off-air recordings (both television and radio) and rental materials will be followed.
- Commercial Film Rating Guide Restrictions will be followed. However, in cases where administration and staff deem it essential to show a film in spite of its rating, parental permission slips will be utilized.
Not rated (NR) materials will be approved by the building principal before presentation to students.
