Flier Approval

Fliers for school distribution must be approved by the APS Communications Office to ensure compliance with APS policies.

This includes material that meets the following requirements:

  • Supports district goals and initiatives 
  • Enhances educational outcomes for students 
  • Benefits students and families
  • Encourages character building activities and/or interests.

We no longer grant permission to businesses seeking access to our employees.

Principals or their designees have the final authority in determining if, when and how to distribute the materials to students.

Flier approval is in no way an endorsement of a particular program or service. 

Unacceptable Materials

The following materials shall be considered unacceptable:

  • Literature that attacks or impugns any ethnic, religious, or racial group.
  • Material promoting hostility, disorder, or violence.
  • Material that proselytizes or promotes a particular religious or political belief unless used for instructional purposes as outlined in the instructional procedural directives.
  • Advertisement of a product or service for sale or rent unless otherwise specified. (See Fund Raisers and Advertising/Promotional Material).
  • Material that is libelous.
  • Material that inhibits the functioning of the school or interferes with the normal operation of the school.
  • Material that favors or opposes a political candidate, any bond issue, or any other question to be decided at an election except as specified in the Negotiated Agreement and as provided by state law on Election Day.
  • Any material that is obscene or pornographic as defined by prevailing community standards.

In the event that the Communications Office rejects a request for distribution of materials, the decision may be appealed to the superintendent and thence to the Board of Education.
