IIABB - Use of Feature Films, Videos or Other Media**
Adopted: 8/13/97, 8/10/22
The Board recognizes the showing of commercially produced and rated feature films and videos may have a legitimate purpose in a school’s educational program. Since the content of these feature films or videos customarily is designed for general audience viewing, the Board feels certain precautions should be taken to ensure the showing of particular films or videos is consistent with the educational values espoused by the district.
All copyright laws must be followed.
Only films rated G may be shown as part of the school program. The Board directs administrative regulations be developed to accomplish this objective, including the provision that parents or guardians have the opportunity to preview a film when practicably possible and that parents or guardians must give prior consent before their student views a film rated PG, PG-13 or not rated.
Any media materials that are not rated are subject to the approval of the administrator prior to viewing.
