Moore County Board of Education policies prohibit the distribution or display of any publication or material that:

  • Is vulgar, indecent or obscene;
  • Contains libelous statements, personal attacks or abusive language such as language defaming a person's character, race, religion, ethnic origin, gender, family status or disability;

Per Moore County Board of Education policy, material from for-profit businesses that advertise services or products will not be approved, posted online or distributed to schools.

The following statement must be printed on all flyers to be distributed through any MCS school: NON-SCHOOL MATERIALS ARE NEITHER ENDORSED BY NOR NECESSARILY REFLECTIVE OF THE VIEWS OF THE MOORE COUNTY BOARD OF EDUCATION OR MOORE COUNTY SCHOOLS.

Within five school days, the Director for Communications will review the request and render a decision. In the event permission to distribute or display the material is denied or restricted, the individual submitting the request will be informed in writing of the reasons for the denial or restriction.

MCS does not guarantee that the flyers will be distributed individually to the students, especially if that effort would interfere with instructional time.
