Relations with Military Recruiters, Postsecondary Institutions and Prospective Employers

This policy is established by the Board of Education to provide reasonable guidelines for military recruiters, postsecondary institutions and prospective employers to have access to school facilities and students, for recruiting purposes.

All military recruiters, postsecondary institutions and prospective employers shall be treated uniformly with regard to the conduct of on-campus student recruitment. A schedule of recruiters visiting the district’s high schools will be announced to the student body in advance by each school’s guidance office through publications and/or by posting on bulletin boards. Recruiters will be allowed to conduct meetings during the school day with those students who are interested.

Recruiters shall be permitted to conduct follow-up visits to the high school in order to meet with individual students upon the individual request of the student involved and with the authorization of the high school administration. Requests for follow-up individual meetings are to be scheduled through the student’s guidance counselor.

All group meetings are to be scheduled through the guidance office at each high school. Classroom teachers who schedule organizational recruiters as a career awareness activity should coordinate those activities through the appropriate member of the guidance staff.

Directory and other student information shall be released to recruiters as allowable in accordance with policy JRA/JRC, Student Records/Release of Information on Students.
