  2. make unreasonable demands upon the time and energies of staff or students or upon the resources of the Corporation;

  3. involve any direct cost to the Corporation;

  4. interrupt the regular school program unless the student body as a whole derives benefit from such activities;

  5. cause the participants to leave the School Corporation, unless:

    1. in compliance with Board's policy 2340 (Field and Other Corporation- Sponsored Trips).

Sponsoring organizations must seek approval by submitting, in writing to the Superintendent, guidelines for contests/exhibits sixty days prior to the promotion of the events.

Guidelines must include rules, time lines, awards, and manner of adjudication.
