506.3 Student Photographs

Code No. 506.3


The board will permit student "portrait" photographs to be taken on school premises by a commercial photographer as a service to the students and their families.

Parents/Guardians will be notified prior to the taking of pictures by a commercial photographer for student "portraits." In no case will students be required to have their picture taken or be pressured to purchase pictures.

Students or commercial photographers may take pictures of students upon consent for such things as the yearbook or student newspaper.

It is the responsibility of the superintendent, in conjunction with the principal, to develop administrative rules regarding student photographs.
