It should get easier for non-profit community groups to distribute materials to students in Wake County schools.
The school board signed off Tuesday on new research and procedures (R&P) that say principals must permit distribution of publications about activites from non-profit community organizations with youth participation of over 500. But the R&P still allows principals to place "reasonable limits" on when and how often the material can be distributed.
School board attorney Ann Majestic said that she'll explain the new distribution procedures to principals at a countywide meeting today. R&P is what's developed by staff to carry out board policies.
