Student Expression Rights: JICED

While students do not shed their constitutional rights when they enter the school or engage in school-related activities, it is the Superintendent's responsibility to adopt rules reasonably necessary to maintain proper discipline among students and create an effective learning environment.

Therefore, all student expression shall be consistent with the aims and objectives of the mission of the school district, the curriculum and this policy. For purposes of this policy, student expression includes expression in any media, including but not limited to written, oral, visual, audio, and electronic media in all classroom and other school-related activities, assignments, and projects.

Students shall not turn in, present, publish or distribute expression that is:

  1. Obscene
  2. Libelous, slanderous, defamatory, or otherwise unlawful under state law
  3. Profane or vulgar
  4. False as to any person who is not a public figure or involved in a matter of public concern
  5. Creates a clear and present danger of the commission of unlawful acts, the violation of lawful school regulations, or the material and substantial disruption of the orderly operation of the school
  6. Violates the rights of others to privacy
  7. Threatens violence to property or persons
  8. Attacks any person because of race, color, sex, age, religion, national background, disability or handicap
  9. Tends to create hostility or otherwise disrupt the orderly operation of the educational process
  10. Advocates illegal acts of any kind, including the use of illegal drugs, tobacco or alcohol

Violation of this policy shall result in disciplinary action against the student consistent with district student discipline policies.
