The School Board encourages staff to participate constructively in community activities which have as their objectives the improvement of the general welfare of the community, state, and nation.
A. In their relationships with community groups, a conscientious effort should be made by staff members to make school life a part of community life, and to bring the community close to the schools. Staff should endeavor to know the community and its influences on and opportunities for students.
B. The School Board desires that all staff members will recognize their responsibilities to the community and will take active roles in the various cultural, civic, and charitable projects.
