State law mandates that the United States flag be displayed over, near or within all school buildings every day school is in session. The Board directs the Superintendent/designee to carry out this mandate. Penalties are assessed by the state for noncompliance.
State law requires the District to:
1. accept donated copies of the national and state mottoes, or money donated to purchase copies of mottoes, if the copies meet design requirements adopted by Board resolution or State law and
2. display the mottoes in an appropriate manner in a classroom, auditorium or cafeteria.
